I don’t know/ John get me a glass of water and a glass of whiskey/let’s play before this table up and bails/it’s not about art, but about industry/this town has got me breaking all my nails/ I can play fancy, I can play mean/I play my heart out to no one, no one/and you are a hit and run driver and I’m standing in the street/let me tell you something, we’re all dying alone/dying alone/ so John get me a glass of whiskey and a glass of water/TN a pretty nurse for the confederacy/and this town is her turbulent, debutant daughter/I’m blind but I can still see it’s empty/ the girls are dressed up like a circus the men are dressed up like a war/and I’ve been wearing these clothes for 3 days and running/and you don’t know what you’re there for/but you know your turn is coming, you hope it’s coming/ so John get me a glass of whiskey, forget the water/it’s a dirty dirty game and I don’t want to bet/don’t let it get me, John, like it got her/I ain’t ready to go down quiet quite yet/I ain’t ready to go down
