Walkabouts

Walkabouts - Findlay's Motel

rate me

Findlay was on his last legs

Findlay was on his last legs

But he made the rules

But he made the rules

Said suffer fools gladly

Said suffer fools gladly

But never end up as the sufferin' fool

But never end up as the sufferin' fool

He shook me down

He shook me down

Though it was my first week on the job

Though it was my first week on the job

Said travellers will trick you

Said travellers will trick you

But you will find out all them things for yourself

But you will find out all them things for yourself

Yes you will

Yes you will

Findlay he threw me the keys

Findlay he threw me the keys

As he walked outside

As he walked outside

And he turned on the big neon sign

And he turned on the big neon sign

But only half of it burned

But only half of it burned

And I was there fightin' off dreams

And I was there fightin' off dreams

When she pulled in the drive

When she pulled in the drive

The sound of her wheels woke me up

The sound of her wheels woke me up

And there she wasstandin' inside

And there she wasstandin' inside

By the stretch

By the stretch

Of a pine barren road

Of a pine barren road

Where the night

Where the night

Never did what was told

Never did what was told

(I never did what was told)

(I never did what was told)

Rooms for the night

Rooms for the night

Room for your rest

Room for your rest

Rooms for the night

Rooms for the night

At findlay's motel

At findlay's motel

She looked like she had come down

She looked like she had come down

From the rattlesnake hills

From the rattlesnake hills

And she pushed the gun to my jaw

And she pushed the gun to my jaw

And told me to clean out the till

And told me to clean out the till

As I handed her over the cash

As I handed her over the cash

Findlay limped in

Findlay limped in

The old man he reached for her gun

The old man he reached for her gun

But she was stronger than him

But she was stronger than him

Yes she was

Yes she was

By the stretch

By the stretch

Of a pine barren road

Of a pine barren road

Where the night

Where the night

Never did what was told

Never did what was told

(I never did what was told)

(I never did what was told)

Rooms for the night

Rooms for the night

Room for your rest

Room for your rest

Rooms for the night

Rooms for the night

At findlay's motel

At findlay's motel

Now bullets don't care what they hit

Now bullets don't care what they hit

And findlay went down

And findlay went down

And she dropped the gun to the floor

And she dropped the gun to the floor

And saidyou best call somone now

And saidyou best call somone now

But my eyes they were fixed on the door

But my eyes they were fixed on the door

And I walked straight outside

And I walked straight outside

Said suffer fools gladly

Said suffer fools gladly

As long as this sufferin' keeps you alive

As long as this sufferin' keeps you alive

For a spell

For a spell
