To The Nines (Mallonee Bill)

Well, the rain & the wind...they are at it again Quarreling lovers...better run for cover Rivers will rise...and to no one's surprise You're gonna get baptized...one way or another Chorus: Honey, you dress up to the 9's And we'll have us a look around And the moonlight'll take us To the farthest edge of town You gotta trust somebody...so it might as well be me I surrendered my badge and guns...& the cards up my sleeve Got a lil' too far ahead of myself...and way behind on dues I ran outta stars...to hitch my wagon to Now you can taste the cup of bitterness and drain the cup of grief You can find that place where wonders never cease There's gold in every story...the power & the glory Last words to be employed...
