Early Morning Shakes

I’ve been out here praying for sunshine


All I see is pouring rain
I’ve been out here praying for good times


And all I get is more pain


There’s a monkey on my back


I’ve got some habits that I can’t break


So I’m out here standing in the sunrise


With a case of the early morning shakes

 

Early Morning Shakes

This bus is headed to hell now


At least that’s what the old folks say


You only got a little while to shine


Before you fade away


Out here on the highway


It’s more then I can take


Just giving everything I got


Until there’s nothing left but the early morning shakes

Early Morning Shakes

I wanna break away and just be myself sometime


And get back all those things I lost along the way


To the early morning shakes

Jack Daniels in her coffee
Ice water in her veins


Bleach blond hair with a rose tattoo


Maybelline and White Rain


I took her back to the woods


Listening to “When the Levee Breaks”


I reached over and took her hand


Then I gave her the early morning shakes

Yea, the early morning shakes

To the early morning shakes

Yea, the early morning shakes
