lyrics

Pale John the beggar told Charlie the queen
The trick to this poison is loving the sin
They kicked all the rust off an 89 Ford 
And wound up somewhere north of Salinas
All through the night they laughed so hard the road shook

Mary the jilted told fast Paul the shamed
The days I longed for you dried my veins
She stood in the ocean, she pealed off her dress
Let it float out and get lost in the breakers
All through the night she screamed so loud the moon shook

Could those battle cries maybe be the sound
Of haunted American lives
Or just the wind upon a chain
Or a long goodbye
Or a long goodbye
Could it be the sounds of haunted American lives

Pale John and Charlie saw Cherokee Rose
Tattooed on the back of a girl with no clothes
Who stepped from the water like she’d never seen land
And asked if they’d take her to Salinas
And all through the night
They sang so loud the road shook
