Tales From The Sad Hotel

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

I am no stranger, I'm not your cousin
A relative from somewhere out of town
Sure ain't no stranger, how's it going?
Gonna to send my loving down
In buckets to the ground
Tales of the sad hotel I'll tell
Until the stars fall down

Nothing less I'll settle for than all your love
I got a message for you it's a token of
The peace that could rain down from up above
Gonna to send my loving down
In buckets to the ground
Tales of the sad hotel I'll tell
Until the stars fall down

Gonna to send my loving down
In buckets to the ground
Tales of the sad hotel I'll tell
Until the stars fall down

Baby of mine, oh baby, why can't you see?
Your uptown circumstance is a fantasy
From time to time I fall on by to see
Gonna to send my loving down
In buckets to the ground
Tales of the sad hotel I'll tell
Until the stars fall down

This is forever, not some halfway place
Where you can choose your face and plan
A getaway when things get out of hand
Gonna to send my loving down
In buckets to the ground
Tales of the sad hotel I'll tell
Until the stars fall down

Gonna to send my loving down
Gonna to send my loving down
Tales of the sad hotel I'll tell
Until the stars fall down

I am no stranger, I'm not your cousin
A relative from way, way out of town
