    Lyrics

    Not a hot cup of coffee, nor a cold glass of tea
    Ever crossed your lips in my company
    Straight bourbon whiskey was all we'd abide
    So let's don't hold back now, we've got nothing to hide

    So much we savored yet so much we missed
    You know I never meant you to see me like this
    Just a faint distant flicker from the last of the storm
    You know a taste of that liquor could do me no harm

    Light me a candle, light me a fire
    Come and sit by the window with the shades drawn
    To the best of intentions and the worst of desires
    Leave by the Gulf Road in the gray dawn

    Take a short handled shovel, take a long handled hoe
    Cover my bones when the west wind blows
    Smooth it off even and pack it down hard
    Now, no more be here but I'll never be far
    I'll no more be here but I'll never be far

    Light me a candle, light me a fire
    Come and sit by the window with the shades drawn
    To the best of intentions and the worst of desires
    Leave by the Gulf Road in the gray dawn
    Leave by the Gulf Road in the gray dawn
