B 15. Turning South - rough vocal sketch
Lyrics
Turning South
2014 Starburst
There's a woman left in Tucson with a barrel full of cash
I can feel her breath upon me but she'll never tell when asked
How this proud bandito escaped from the sheriff with a badge
Now I've finally filled the big shoes of the man who was my dad
(chorus)
Senorita Princess with a rose behind your ear
There is nothing left to hope for but your voice I'd like to hear
There is nothing left more precious than your lips upon my mouth
I have passed by every detour now my life is turning south
I keep running toward the future but its circling round the past
Thought I shed all my belongings 'cept this blood that's flowing fast
There's no place left to linger when the ending starts to run
I'll be burning my tomorrows with some whisky and a gun
(chorus)
Senorita Princess with a rose behind your ear
There is nothing left to hope for but your voice I'd like to hear
There is nothing left more precious than your lips upon my mouth
I have passed by every detour now my life is turning south
Bridge
I'll be resting by the pillars underneath this sagging bridge
As I gather up mementos like some magnets on the fridge
As I count the waves of sunlight filtering through your smiling eyes
When we meet again in heaven we will never say goodbye
(chorus)
Senorita Princess with a rose behind your ear
There is nothing left to hope for but your voice I'd like to hear
There is nothing left more precious than your lips upon my mouth
I have passed by every detour now my life is turning south
