Election Blues

The Cold Stares 2021 Single Song from the album Heavy Shoes

Lyrics

Oh I’ve been here before, got my finger on the trigger and my good foot out the door
I think I’ve heard this line, the house is on fire but everything will be just fine

Tell the lawyers that I paid my bills, dotted the line when I signed my will.

Hey momma won’t you tie your shoes, you got the rattlesnake fever and election blues
I think I’ve seen this film, different director but we all know how it ends
Oh, you know I’ve read this book, just another killer that gets right off the hook

Tell the lawyers that I paid my bills, dotted the line when I signed my will.

Hey momma won’t you tie your shoes, you got the rattlesnake fever and election blues

First they tell your brother’s not the same
Then they tell you that your sister is to blame
Then they tell you there’s no heaven up above
They put a knife in your neck and tell you, that all you need is love

Now tell me do you wanna be free? Oh Lord.
Now tell me do you wanna be free? Hey now.
Are you ready, and do you wanna be free? Come on now.
Come on and tell me now, do you want to be free?

Tell the lawyers that I paid my bills, dotted the line when I signed my will.

Hey momma won’t you tie your shoes, you got the rattlesnake fever and election blues
