listen

  1. This is going to cost you.
    If you really want to hear a
    country fiddle, you have to listen
    hard, high up in its twang and needle.
    You can't be running off like this,
    all knotted up with yearning,
    following some train whistle,
    can't hang onto anything that way.
    When you're looking for what's lost,
    everything's a sign,
    but you have to stay right up next to
    the drawl and pull of the thing
    you thought you wanted, had to
    have it, could not live without it.
    Honey, you will lose your beauty
    and your handsome sweetie, this whine,
    this agitation, the one you sent for
    with your leather boots and your guitar.
    The lonesome snag of barbed wire you have
    wrapped around your heart is cash money,
    honey, you will have to pay.
     
  2. ..................wow
