For Miss Perl

My Boulevard of Broken  Hearts
Makes a man feel that he ain't got a start
Wish the clouds would leave my eyes
And I'd see you through unbroken eyes.

Highway dust and a woman's lust
Christ in a Church, the window so still
Second Hand Redemption
A blessing from afar
Baby just let me drive your car.

Thunder in a V8, lightening on the hills
Screaming tyres and a pile of unpaid bills.
Drift down to the Delta
Katerina's been and gone

Cleaned out the City where Billy Bowden blew
Storyville Blue in a pouring sky
Louisiana stew, crawfish for sale
A dollar a dozen, who's buying tonight?
