skull, kiss and goodbye, no kisses after 3 minutes

I tried to look for a photo that I could share for Paula’s B&W Sunday today, but I decided to create something out of these four images instead.

Townes Van Zandt – Waiting ‘Round To Die

Sometimes I don’t know where this dirty road is taking me
Sometimes I don’t even know the reason why
but I guess I keep on gamblin’, lots of booze and lots of ramblin’
Well it’s easier than just to waitin’ ’round to die

oh one-time friends I had a ma, I even had a pa
well he beat her with a belt once ’cause she cried
She told him to take care of me, headed down to Tennessee
Well it’s easier than just to waitin’ ’round to die

I came age and found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
oh she cleaned me out and hit it on the sly
well I tried to kill the pain, I bought some wine and hopped a train
Seemed easier than just to waitin’ ’round to die

And a friend said he knew where some easy money was
We robbed a man and brother did we fly
But the posse caught up with me, and drug me back to Muskogee
and it’s two long years, a-waitin’ ’round to die

oh but now I’m out of prison, I got me a friend at last
He don’t drink or steal or cheat or lie
oh his name’s codeine and he’s the nicest thing I’ve seen
well together we’re gonna wait around and die
yeah together we’re gonna wait around and die
