Last Hope

Post by Tyler »

New one from the stream tonight
Put your pants on Leroy, hear they're coming round to get us
They think one of us is over the hill, and the other's a drunkard
They got us outnumbered, they'd better hope they don't upset us
And I remember the last time we were down for the count and we conquerored

I remember the last time the riot got started
One took it on the chin and his brains got parted
And his head was bashed in
We all got wasted in Last Hope

The well-tanned man from the Panhandle, wearing a speedo
Said "Stick with me Sunny and we'll be shit in high cotton"
When the shit hit the fan he didn't slow down til Toledo
I took offense at all of the nonsense, and all of the manners we'd been taught and forgetten

Manners come handy when the truth is well earned
And your privates ain't private, and there's so much left to learn
and you're walkin' around in circles and you're caught up the ropes
In Last Hope

And I'm a stickler for taking from all my mistakes
And I'm repeating the same ones, learning my breaks
And I'm learning from hindsight if that's what it takes,
I'll let it

Be a shame if it all came down to Jack and Diane
But I'm running my fifties right down into the ground
As fast as I can
Til I crash land In Last Hope

So stick around friends can't wait to see how it ends, if we let it
There's a rear flank downdraft headed for the liferaft
Maybe our best case scenario is figurin' out how to forget it
And the last man standing buys the beer

And I remember the last time the riot got started
One took it on the chin, his brains got parted
And his head was bashed in, and his blood got tasted
In Last Hope

And it'd be stupid to think it could be any other way
But for want of a nail I'll still screw up some way
Beats phoning it in and wasting away
In Last Hope

Oooh, in Last Hope

Patterson Hood, 2020 presumably

Awesome. Thanks for posting. Really enjoyed this one. Kicked the show off on the right foot.
All it takes is one wicked heart, a pile of money, and a chain of folks just doing their jobs

This is Patterson's Craig Finn song.
The sooner we put those assholes in the grave&piss on the dirt above it, the better off we'll be

I haven't heard it yet, but just by reading the lyrics, that's exactly what I thought.

It really seems unfair that he can write Patterson Hood songs, Drive-By Truckers songs, and now a Craig Finn song. Leave some for the rest of us, why don't you?

no Ybor City reference ;)
Does anyone need yet another politician, caught with his pants down and money sticking in his hole?

So it wasn't just me. Reminds me a lot of Craig's last solo record, God in Chicago in particular.
