Lexington Slow Down
Lyrics
Won't break my heart
Won't hope to die
Before Lexington
Could slow down
Say a chariot's waitin'
Will it get cut loose
The place starts swingin'
When it's me on the noose

Mother do you think
That the children cry
Because they wanna shake your chain
Marked miles today
One for every year in my life
In this stinkin' fuckin' rain

Oooh, just to slow down
So I could slow down
So I could slow down, yeah

Look for me, love,
Just one last time
Spare me a chance
I've wasted mine
Shine on me, light
Don't you know I would
Reach for you there
If only I could

If I could slow down
If I could slow down
If I could slow down
Just slow down

Don't mind bein' stoned
They said Jesus was
And I like bein' alone
And I could take livin' low
Forgive my bein' cruel if ever I was
Say a word for me, too,
When I'm under the gun

It wouldn't break my heart
If I could slow down
Let the place start swingin'
If there's a chariot waitin'

It wouldn't break my heart
If I could slown down
Let the place start swingin'
If there's a chariot waitin'
Wouldn't break my heart
