8. HARD, HARD LINE | I got a line on a pretty good job on the Louisiana Coast growing Tabasco peppers. But the trail ran out in an alligator mob. I wound up sleepin’ in a colony of lepers. | It was a hard line – a hard, hard line to follow. It was a hard line – a hard, hard line to follow. Was a hard, hard line. | I got a line on some Texas blues – salted with Tequila, spiced with sin. I drove over there, but there was nothin’ but religion of a very weak sort stretched pale and thin. | CHORUS | There was a gal I knew could sing like an angel, following a heavenly sign. The way I am now I could sure use her throwin’ me a few of her lines. | I got a line on a one way trip down a Mississippi road that was pretty well known. There was no turnin’ back. I thought I might slip, but why the hell not. It’s just flesh and bone. | CHORUS| W&M LINDY HEARNE & HAL GREENWOOD © EARTHEN VESSEL MUSIC (ASCAP)
