Under an Overpass
words and music by Mark Maysey

it’s a cold winter night I’ve no place to go
not a dollar to spend, no wheels for the road
this old beat up guitar and a cheap box of wine
under an overpass and next to a sign

from rats to cockroaches and transient stares
they’ve all heard my stories, they’ve all heard my prayers
death and destruction, a fragmented mind
under an overpass and next to a sign

second hand needles and government pills
some from the border and some from the mills
a chartered greyhound from parker to cline
under an overpass and next to a sign

my service to country was the right thing to do
that’s what they told me right out of school
from boot camp to Houston and Lt. cline
to under an overpass and next to a sign

well my brother never made it, no he never came home
missing in action is etched on his stone
pictures of family litter my shrine
under an overpass and next to a sign

I’m gonna drink me some liquor and write me a song
the 101 ‘s quiet but it won’t last long
a thick leaded pencil, some paper with lines
under an overpass and next to a sign
