The Lyrics

Wrecked my auto, why did I drive drunk in Texas?
Ran a light with a Lexus, it's so long now.
I'm only drunk some,
I know that I put the keys in,
But I had good reason to.
Too drunk to walk now.

You are drunk beyond all blindness boy,
Your feet seem so unstable,
Your mixin' Beam and cars is always a bad bet.

Could you loosen up these bindings,
Put some play into this cable,
I'm not carrying no guns, I'm not a threat.

Dented auto, oh, it was such an old clunker,
It's plain now a junker, cain't drive you on home.
My freedom, my freedom well, don't suppose I'll be walkin',
It's prison they're talkin' for this wreck I'll atone.

Was three sheets stone cold out by dinner time,
A point three blow on the meter line.
I did not see that stop sign I must say.
I wasn't all that high, although,
Ain't it funny how your mem'ry goes away.


Wrecked my auto, I'm gonna need good defenses,
Was driving quite senseless. so says the state.
As they're arraignin', but to explain though I'd love to,
You better let that jury love you,
(Let that jury love you)
You better let that jury love you,
They're holdin' your fate.

Just finished a Desperado attempt myself. It's fantastic how elegantly and cleverly you play off the OS. (Love what you did with 'arraignin'.)

Why did you drive drunk in Texas? To fit in, I suppose. Of course, Don Henley is also from Texas, so this was a natural. Five pitchers of Lone Star Beer.
