1. Real Man

From the recording These American Hearts (2014)


ah baby, baby won't you take my hand
look at me now I'm a real man
bending over in a parking lot
my cup is & the liquor is hot
clerk behind the counter had something on me
said I can tell you've been drinking since 3

but I won't fall if I'm high
it's too far down baby, can we drive
this white Cadillac with sugar around your eyes
point to every seedy bar where a piece of me dies

oh me oh my I got nothing to lose
this house is cold; no smoke in the shoot
oh baby, baby won't you warm me up
this bottle is empty and the windows are stuck
and the northern winds don't make no sound
until this house is broke & spinning around
