James used to come up with Riffs and record them on his crappy cell phone and send them to us. I remember listening to it and thinking, ok, we definitely will be able to write another album full of riffs. This song is a monster if you stop and listen to all the details in the recording. It is one of the best arranged songs I think we have ever done.


Late night and the jailhouse is dead.
I need a $2 drink and some $10 head.
She lived just accross the road.
I gotta 6 pack of rubbers and I got 'em to go.

We can leave this ghost town, leave it all behind.
A tumble weed connections further down the line.
We can ride these rails, it's all up to you.
I am the law around here, what are you gonna do?

I got an itchy trigger finger.
You gotta bounty on you.
I got an itchy trigger finger.
You gotta body, you got a body on you.

Silver Star and I shoot to kill.
Chase tail and $100 bill.
There's gold in them hills and pearls in her eyes.
I gotta warrant, she's gotta cherry pie.
