lyrics

Under an open sky
Of ghostly light
A man feels like
He ain't much there

But it soothes the mind
To know with the passing of time
Ones passions and crimes
Turn to air

Suns up baby and I'm way passed gone like I knew the way
And every town looks the god damned same from that bad highway
Home looks just as fleeting as that old river bend
It's just one more place that I'll never see again

Well I've heard some say
There's an open plane
That spreads for days
Without a care

And it's peopled with
A lonesomeness
That once come across just seems to stare

Suns up baby and I'm way passed gone like I knew the way
And every town looks the god damned same from that bad highway
Home looks just as fleeting as that old river bend
It's just one more place that I'll never see again

Well I was passed Baton Rouge
When I heard the news
And knew it true
I'd been displaced

And then I had the thought
That the dream I'd sought
And believed well fought
Had all been chase

Oh Ellie
Why you gotta go girl
Oh Ellie
Why you gotta go

I chased your name
Left good men slain
And hardened my case against the world
All in the name
Of a long dead flame
And the angry love of a pretty girl

Suns up baby and I'm way passed gone like I knew the way
And every town looks the god damned same from that bad highway
Home looks just as fleeting as that old river bend
It's just one more place that I'll never see again
