Headed To Lethbridge

I’m headed to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
there’s bends on the hills
and holes in the road Jan’s swallowing pills about to unload Jack’s sleepin’ in back
just fresh out of jail And I’m headed to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
I’m headed to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
a mind full of dread I’ve beer in the trunk Jack’s slow in the head can’t wait to get drunk Jan's shot-gun in front
looks car-sick and pale And I’m headed to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
This is a rough road
a tough load
about to implode
We’re in the wrong code
thoughts slowed
even explode
...
Lookin’ for back road
a side road
maybe crossroad
...
And aren’t they owed
God’s love mode
our mom would’ve showed
I’m headed to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
there’s hurt in my mind and tears in my eyes it’s cruel to be kind
is kindness unwise? there’s food on the dash
half eaten and stale
And I’m headed to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
I’m headed to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
all’s quiet in the car no words left to say the clinic is far they’ll thank me some day “go help them” dad said
“get back on the rails” So I’m headed to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
This is a rough road
a tough load
about to implode
We’re in the wrong code
thoughts slowed
even explode
...
Lookin’ for back road
a side road
maybe crossroad
...
And aren’t they owed
God’s love mode
our mom would’ve showed
We’re stuck in this car
and the day is not done
Just about now
I’m gonna high tail and run I’m headed to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
a fork in the road U-turn in the cards
could be they’re owed
freedom from guards
can’t do it to them
more ways to prevail
So I won’t go to Lethbridge to deliver the mail
This is a rough road
a tough load
about to implode
We’re in the wrong code
thoughts slowed
even explode
...
Lookin’ for back road
a side road
maybe crossroad
...
And aren’t they owed
God’s love mode
our mom would’ve showed
We’re stuck in this car
and the day is not done
Just about now
I’m gonna high tail and run
This is a rough road
a tough load
about to implode
We’re in the wrong code
thoughts slowed
even explode
...
Lookin’ for back road
a side road
maybe crossroad
...
And aren’t they owed
God’s love mode
our mom would’ve showed
