Hospitals And Jails Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

We could sit beneath the evening
And let the day turn blue
I could never let the darkness
Replace the thought of you

C'mon darling let's catch that train
To wherever we call god
Maybe it's in Massachusetts
Or maybe not

It's just you and I
It's just you and I, my dear
Just you and I
It's just you and I

Let's keep our boots pointed west
Stay left of the police
I know you're like a freight train
To escape your family

You've got a father who has done you wrong
And a mother who doesn't care
Get your backbone up my darling
Let down your hair

It's just you and I
It's just you and I, my dear
Just you and I
It's just you and I

When all the world turns into hospitals and jails
I can always count on your love to be my bail
And we'll go traveling on from year to year
Just you and i, my dear

I've got my backpack full of fourteen cartons
Of cigarettes, cigarettes
I've got a bumper sticker on my chest that says
No regrets, no regrets

I've got your love draped all around me like
A big black cape, a big black cape
All the billboards on the highway say
Don't be late, don't be late

It's just you and I
It's just you and I

When all the world turns into hospitals and jails
I can always count on your love to be my bail
We'll go traveling on from year to year
Just you and I, my dear

Well I woke up in the middle of the kitchen floor
I was listening for your knocking
But you weren't outside my door
And I know that you won't be coming 'round

In the way I want you to
I wish you'd throw your arms around me
But it's not for me, it's not for me
It'll be just me, it'll be just me

And I know I never told you how i felt
But you could never understand
The blues that you have dealt me
So I'll keep traveling on from year to year

It'll be just me, my dear
It'll be just me, my dear
Same thing year after year
It'll be just me, my dear
