Where I Lay (Don't Matter) *2010 Bedroom Track*

from 13 North & South EP by Pelican Johnny



I started out on the wrong side of the tracks
so I followed them tracks
and I ain't looking back
until I see the smoke of the textile mills

I know some folks, got a place to stay
Jen sells the hooch, thats a place to play
And I'm never too far from escape by the rails

It don't matter where I lay
When I lay my body down
As long as I hear that train whistle sound

It don't matter where I sleep
If I hear that whistle weep
I can remember the days spent on those Richmond streets

Burlesque show on a Friday night
The drunks will drink and the [edge] boys will fight
And the broken hearts, they will go unnoticed

My bicycle's locked next to yours
Lets get out of here and ride to the shores
of the James River and sing away our blues

Follow the river down
I think about the years I let others down
I hope they don't remember me this way

I stand on a rock and I look around
I'm thankful for the happiness that I've found
I won't fuck it up this time or at least I'll try
