    There's a high wind blowin, & the stars are shining bright,
    Oh what a night, this is gonna be--
    I think I'll let the world sleep without me.
    I got one eye open, one eye closed.
    & my thin body's trembling beneath the bedclothes,
    My hearts beatin' against the roof of my mouth
    --It's almost time to get out of this house.

    I got one hand on the radio, one hand on the wheel,
    I got my right foot on the floorboard,--
    & I'm preparing to kill or be killed.

    There's a high wind blowin', & the stars are shining bright.
    & the rain upon the tarmac,
    --helps me sail through the traffic lights,
    I'm heading down to the dock of the bay,
    --to feel the power of the waves,
    I'm gonna move up close to that wind,
    & wrestle with the thoughts solitude always brings.

    Y'see I'm stuck between hell & the deep blue sea,
    & I know that water's sucked under better man than me,
    I was just another western guy,
    --with desires that couldn't be satisfied,
    So one day, I asked the angels for inspiration,
    --but the devil bought me a drink,
    & he's been buying them ever since,
    he's had the liquor on my tongue
    --feel like the sea upon the sand,
    he's had me signing confessions
    --from this shaking hand,
    he's had me struggling to hang onto hope--
    Like a drunken sailor in a tugboat
    with a bottle of vodka in my overcoat,
    & my dog eared bible lost--overboard

    Y'see he tricked me into temptation,
    So I've tricked him into this confrontation,
    I never said I was the man I appeared to be
    not the flesh wrapped around the bones of necessity.
    Or the soul on fire--scribbling thoughts for posterity.

    I'm gonna have little lucifer, runnin' off to purgatory,
    --with his tail between his legs,
    I'm gonna teach him a lesson
    --he ain't ever gonna forget.
    All the vultures & crows are fixin up some tombstones
    but they won't be chewing the meat off my bones.

    There's a high wind blowin' & the stars are shining bright.
    Me & him are gonna have a little knife fight,
    --in the bowels of the big city skyline,
    Oh this feelin' inside runs dark & deep
    --Tonight my hearts not thumping
    --A Mercy Beat


    I was just another western guy,
    with desires that couldn't be--satisfied.
