lyrics

Jo-Annie's Shack

She rides a bike without a helmet, she got chickens in the yard
She don't drive a car, no sir, no way
She don't drink no more, but she smokes a pack a day
Last week one of her chickens ran away

When I can't sleep at night
Big round moon and the darkest kind of light

Breaking away to go
Hanging around too long
Staying up all night in Jo-Annie's Shack

Small town in the Green Hills, a kingdom in the woods
Tucked away in her own little paradise
Remebering New York City and the last night on Earth
That night a folksinger saved her life

When I can't sleep at night
Big round moon and the darkest kind of light

-Chorus-

Now it's four o'clock in the afternoon and I been up since three AM
Drinking cold coffee all day
There's a fresh pot in the kitchen, but it don't make no difference
I just like it better this way

All these fucking people with their frowns
I try so hard not to let 'em bring me down

I close my eyes and try to dream
Of all the places that I been
Remembering that night in Jo-Annie's Shack
When I was breaking away to go
Hanging around too long
Staying up all night in Jo-Annie's Shack
