She Sleeps Tight

Sleeps so tight
she has a marksman's eye.
Maker's mark
tattoo firewater spine.
Leather shoes
but nowhere to go.

Dice and coins
scattered in the snow.
Dice and coins
scattered in the snow.

Won't be long,
until I see her face.
She's waiting
in an undisclosed place.
I've been conspired
banned from my muse.

This won't stick
poor boy's all confused.
This won't stick
poor boy's all confused.

In Salem town
she keeps her chin so high.
Darkened breeze
she smiles as I roll by.
Step inside
she looks for tables left.

Wink at time
nothing lasts except yourself.
Wink at time
nothing lasts except yourself.

Like a Steamboat
she plans to roll on down.
To the Gulf
out of this dirty town.
Copper mesh
kept stuffed in a jar.

Sharp cold hit
turning wine to water.
Sharp cold hit
turning wine to water.

We know him
eye deed by his ship.
In a trap
a kind of goosechase trip.
Whiskey fumes
and stale gunsmoke.

Sunk and drowned
with all her knives and jokes.
Sunk and drowned
with all her knives and jokes.

Sleeps so tight
she has a marksman's eye.
Maker's mark
tattoo firewater spine.
Leather shoes
but nowhere to go.

Leather Shoes wrote:
I buy only leather shoes to symbolically support this great song! Where can I buy copper mesh? I think it would make a groovy tank top. Post this song each time it is performed live. This song is as good as DAY DREAM BELIEVER!
Thanks for listening and for the critique!

Another Band in Montgomery Alabama has this same song on their CD. I bought a copy at a gas station in Auburn last weekend. And yyyyyep, it was the same song.
A remake/cover version?

I think it is listed as their song. You can buy a copy in that white gas station with the big blue stripe on the front edge outside of Auburn after you cross the bypass. The band calls itself MANIERA. They are from Montgomery. The CD was $5.00
Must be a different song and you were confused...

Well, I sure look forward to hearing this alleged CD... I note that you're another "hit and run" anonymous poster so the chances are that this was posted just to attemt to create confusion in some way.

Interesting, regardless...

In Auburn MANIERA is playing everywhere. That song is awesome. Ya'll got that song from them right?
Still haven't heard it or this alleged band, so looks like we can write all this off as an attempt at a hoax by another anonymous troll.
