lyrics

MONROE COUNTY LINE

I’ve never been a violent man
but I don’t run from a fight
minding my own business
seems to keep the lid on tight
the Redneck Riviera’s where
this trouble all began
and now I’m driving south
with someone’s blood wet on my hands

don’t you worry, baby
yeah, I’ll be doing fine
just as long as I can get across
the Monroe County line

I got no use for bullets
but I have my fillet knife
I grew up in a fishing town
I’ve lived there all my life
when times are hard there’s money
hauling bales on up the coast
yeah, meet up with some ‘Bama boys
and then make like a ghost

don’t you worry, baby
things will work out fine
just as long as I can make it to
the Monroe County line

I got a nose for trouble
It’s gotten me this far
and I don’t like the way things smell
behind this backwoods bar

It wasn’t money in his hand
just a smoking gun
I stabbed him when he shot my partner
now I’m on the run
flying down the Stretch I’m in
a dead man’s pickup truck
flashing lights and sirens tell me
I’ve run out of luck

doesn’t matter baby,
that I can see the signs
‘cause the Sheriff, he just stopped me
at the Monroe County line
don’t you worry, baby
oh, I’ll be doing time, on
some road gang pulling weeds
below the Monroe County
the Monroe County line
