Sheriff of my Town

If somebodies tryn to mess me around

I don't make a sound 

a diamond light flashes in my eye

the sheriff of my town

and his reply comes with the breeze

Talkin to me in my mind

tellin me it's gonna be just fine

I just have to leave his will alone

and every thing works out on its' own

Right over wrong

and it's still the same old story

it might now feel like it 

but it's always gone this way

and when I catch a shot of love

and a windy cloud comes round

that's the sheriff of my town

Takin me Back

I've been drinking for the past two nights

and not sleepin for the past three days

if the good Lord was a human being

he'd be livin it up with me

California has the northern lights

but my body is a purple haze

Melodies' movin in my mind at night

takin me back in time

Now we're floatin in a river somewhere

forgot the name but the water is fine

we resisted this at first I know

but now were ready to tow the line

California has the northern lights

but my body is a purple haze

I infused this with some herbal tea

so you may only need just a taste

all the love you ever wished you made

is waiting down the avenue

California has the northern lights

but my body is a purple haze
