Blues Barrel

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: David Nelson

A new New Riders song, introduced in 2008.

Sitting on a blues barrel, sick and tired of trying
If I ever get a ride again, I'm gonna shake it like a lion
Shake it like a tiger, shake it like a bear
Shake it like the wind of time was whistling through my hair

Sitting on a blues barrel, finger up my nose
Sitting on a blues barrel, that's the way it goes

Sitting on a blues barrel, a pistol in my paw
Gonna be a show-down, like you never saw
Gonna shoot the lights out, gonna shoot the floor
Gonna plug the blues barrel, and run on out the door

Sitting on a blues barrel, smelling like a rose
Sitting on a blues, barrel, moaning about my woes

Sitting on a blues barrel, bleeding at the heart
Girl I almost married, just left and took the car
I am sure gonna miss you, my bright and shining star
But if you don't come back now, babe, at least return the car

Sitting on a blues barrel, sleeping in my clothes
Sitting on a blues barrel, God almighty knows
