Methamphetamine Blues
Lyrics
(laughter)
(Hit it)
Wake up, wake up
Children don't you hear me coming
Get up, get up
Because I got to have the honey
And I don't want to leave this heaven so soon

Rollin', children, keep on rollin'
Rollin', children, keep on rollin'
Keep the light turned low and the back door open
My love rained down like sugar so sweet
(I got what you want, so come and get it)
Yes children, I will

The law man rides
With his uniform clean
Shine on his shoes
My radio plays methamphetamine blues
And tell all the news
I'm rollin' just to keep on rollin'

Wake up
Children
Get rock soul church
Keep a lock on the kitchen
Do risks for your daddy
(I'll do it daddy)
Keep your eyes wide open and my shotgun loaded
Cuz I don't want to leave this heaven so soon (this heaven so soon)
Rollin' just to keep on rollin'
Rollin' just to keep on rollin' (yeah, rollin') (just to keep on rollin')
Rollin' just to keep on rollin'
My love rained down like sugar so sweet
(I got what you want, so come and get it)
Yes baby

The law man rides (the law man rides)
With his uniform clean
Shine on his shoes
My radio plays methamphetamine blues (methamphetamine blues)
And tell all the news

I'm rollin' just to keep on rollin' (just to keep on rollin')
I'm rollin' just to keep on rollin' (just to keep on rollin')
Rollin' just to keep on rollin' (just to keep on rollin')
I don't want to leave this heaven so soon (just to keep on rollin')
(Just to keep on rollin')
Rollin' just to keep on rollin' (just to keep on rollin')
Rollin' just to keep on rollin' (yeah, rollin') (just to keep on rollin')
Rollin' just to keep on rollin'
Rollin' just to keep on rollin'
I don't want to leave this heaven so soon
