Mark Lanegan — Lexington Slow Down lyrics

(Lanegan, Richards)

Won't break my heart
I won't hope to die
If before Lexington I could slow down
They say a chariot's waiting when you get cut loose
Let the place start swinging
When it's me on the noose
Mother do you think that your children cry
Because they want to shake your chain?
I walked miles today
One for every year of my life
In this stinking fucking rain
Just to slow down
So I could slow down
So I could slow down
Work for me luck
Just one last time
Spare me a chance
I've wasted mine
Shine on me light
Don't you know I would
Reach for you there
If only I could
If I could slow down
If I could slow down
If I could slow down
Just slow down
I don't mind being stoned
They say Jesus was
And I like being alone
And I can take living low
Forgive my being cruel if ever I was
And say a word for me too
When I'm under the gun
It wouldn't break my heart
If I could slow down
Let the place start swinging
If there's a chariot waiting
It wouldn't break my heart
If I could slow down
Let the place start swinging
If there's a chariot waiting
It wouldn't break my heart
