lyrics

Sweet Loretta

I’m not the son of a miner or a boy who was raised
on script and prayer
oh but I was born to be
disconnected with my place in the world
I could have been gospel-true at heart
oh but faith deserts me

Oh - sweet Loretta
sweet Loretta sing to me
I been hiding out with some of those good old songs for years
Loretta and me.

Woke up drunk in Kentucky one morning with this strange sense of deja vu
oh turns out I was never there
But everything else I’ve experienced is fiction and I was recognised at birth
oh, then I was made to disappear

Oh - sweet Loretta
sweet Loretta sing to me
I been hiding out with some of those good old songs for years
Loretta and me.

(spoken)

back in ’82 I hitch-hiked all the way from San Diego to Kentucky
I was shivering in the dessert in the dead of night at Gila Bend Arizona until a Christian trucker picked me up and took me on to Texas where he fed me in a Diner straight out of a Coen Brothers movie. An air force pilot kept a gun in the glove box and a prayer on his windshield, some other crazy guy told me that “one day all cars would fly” - and the highway patrolman told me to take the Bus

Oh - sweet Loretta
sweet Loretta sing to me
I been hiding out with some of those good old songs for years
Loretta and me.
