little chalkie lyrics – hunters & collectors

here comes a ringing testimonial
here comes the saddest song you’ve ever heard
from somewhere else, somewhere good
in a warehouse painted red

around my house, around my table
and i will testify, testify when i’m able.

everybody in this town is sleeping
little chalkie’s gone out west to score
p*ssing by the metho’s gate she dropped something
‘cos our town doesn’t stand there anymore

and my town, it is a teacher
all trucks and beers and memories spread out on the road
and my town is a leader of children
to where caution is a long wide load
long wide load.

you love me good, you work me hard
three letters and a smile on a little white card
oh yay, oh yay, oh there you lay
lying in the road on debt collectors day.
