lyrics

last time I saw her was in Pittsburgh
or maybe it was Tennessee
my eyes were full of whiskey
and I swear someone is following me
had a plane or a train boat or a car
and I tried to keep her in sight
last thing I remember
she was fading off into the night

so I went down to Mexico
asked the sun for help
looked in every nook and cranny
started talking to myself
no one could understand me
until I said her name
then they all screamed and hollered
and the whole place went up in flames

by the time I got back I was terrified
frightened for my life
you know I know someone is following me
started carrying a big old knife
checked into a hotel room
up on the 77th floor
started drinking whiskey
put the knife down right by the door

well I was soundly sleeping
when she came into the room
awoke in surprise and confusion
didn't know what to do
well she stabbed me with my own
whispered baby it's all for the best
and I could feel her eyes upon me
as I struggled to take a breath

she was my mother-lovin baby
don't you know I was her man
and though I never met her
well I knew she'd understand
and now she stabbed me killed me cut me open
with my own knife
a paranoid delusion
and a lovin sacrifice
