Long Thoughts




Shepards and cowboys, we got lots in common. We are, none of us, rich. We both walk loney ways, a hundred eyes watch us for direction and we got us nothin' but the sky to answer.

God talks to shepards. Talks to cowboys too, except we're a might quieter about it. God doesn't talk to kings or politicans, because those folk don't care for people. Shepards watch and seek and listen for the lost, God knows about that, and God likes to talk to them that know.

Out here, thoughts strech long, days sometimes, like the prayers of angels.

“On nights like this
When the world's a bit amiss
And the lights go down
Across the trailer park
I get down, I feel had
Feel on the verge of going mad
And then it's time to punch the clock

I put on some make-up
Turn on the tape deck
And put the wig back on my head
Suddenly I'm Miss Midwest Midnight Checkout Queen
Until I head home
And I put myself to bed

I look back on where I'm from
Look at the woman I've become
And the strangest things seem suddenly routine
I look up from my Vermouth on the rocks
The gift wrapped wig's still in the box
Of towering velveteen

I put on some make-up
Some LaVern Baker
And pull the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I'm Miss Beehive 1963
Until I wake up
And I turn back to myself

Some girls, they got natural ease
They wear it any way they please
With their French flip curls
From perfumed magazines
Wear it up, let it down
This is the best way that I've found
To be the best you've ever seen

I put on some make-up
Turn on the eight-track
I'm pulling the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I'm Miss Farrah Fawcett
From TV
Until I wake up
And I turn back to myself

I put on some make-up
Turn on the eight track
I'm pulling the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I'm Miss Punk Rock Star
Of stage and screen
And I ain't ever
I'm never turning back”
