Casey's Last Ride Lyrics

Artist: Waylon Jennings
Album: The Taker / Tulsa

Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walkin' down
The stairway to the subway in the shadows down below
Following their footsteps through the neon darkened corridors
Of silent desperation never speaking to a soul
The poison air he's breathing has the dirty smell of dyin'
Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the rain
Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes
Of the clicking of the turn stops and the rattle of his chains
Oh she said Casey it's been so long since I've seen you
Here she said just a kiss to make a body smile
See she said I've put on new stocking just to please you
Lord she said Casey can you only stay a while
[ guitar ]
Casey leaves the underground and stops inside the Golden Crown
For something wet to wipe away the chill that's on his bones
Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men
Who reach for anything they can to keep from goin' home
Standing in the corner Casey drinks his final bitter
Never glancing in the mirror at the people passing by
Then he stumbles as he's leavin' and he wonders if the reason
Is the beer that's in his belly or the tear that's in his eye
Oh she said I suppose you seldom think about me
Now she said now that you've a family of your own
Still she said it's so blessed good to feel your body
Lord she said Casey it's a shame to be alone hmm
