Recorded by Jason Robert Burt


Flowers fill the window sill and autumn fills the room
There's ashes on the nightstand boy
Prepare your pan and broom
Such negative reactions bring about about a sense of doom
Don't you never turn your back on Jacksboro Highway

A cutoff runs right through the heart in old sweet Robert's name
As crooked as a cripple's back so many lives it's claimed
A drunkard's brawl in a dancehall can't ever be to blame
For vultures writing laws out on vacation

Oh Lord why do I still pray
When the odds are better off to run away
Leave my affairs and leave my family
And just run
I think it's time I finally understand
That the world is in need of a man
To handle things the best way that he can
Without spilling blood

No one ever accused me of being a decent man
But I've worked my back from dawn till dusk on this beautiful land
From smoking pot in alley ways to drunken one night stands
Music became my life on Jacksboro Highway
A late night in a smoky dive is something status never learns
And we all lost faith in the vote during everybody's second term
It all goes back into our craft this money that we earn
Cause what good is a bank that ain't on fire

Chucho is the dark dramatic pause that preludes the stranger you just met telling you she's pregnant. You said all you did was talk. Someone is lying, or God is involved. Either way, we should talk more. Chucho.
