about

This song is a collection of images and activity imagined while traveling through the Texas panhandle.

lyrics

Tumbleweeds; girls with needs
Drinking Shiner Bock at 2: 00
We all convene at the Dairy Queen
A fresh tattoo is all that’s new so I go
Smoking in the shadow of the silo; shooting Lone Star bottles off the ledge
Dropping bricks and yelling look out below, yeah I’m just living on the edge of nowhere
I’m just living on the edge

Silver spurs; racial slurs
Dust blowing thick on Route 66
Stockyard stench; mend a fence
Make 40 bucks then floor my truck to go
Smoking in the shadow of the silo; shooting Lone Star bottles off the ledge
Dropping bricks and yelling look out below, yeah I’m just living on the edge of nowhere
I’m just living on the edge

Enchilada, I forgot
About the day I used to say
This town’s a drag, gonna pack my bag
And hit the road but that rooster crowed and I’m still
Smoking in the shadow of the silo; shooting Lone Star bottles off the ledge
Dropping bricks and yelling look out below, yeah I’m just living on the edge of nowhere
I’m just living on the edge
