Lágrimas


Desconozco quien es el hombre de raza negra que aparece detrás de Townes Van Zant, pero al escuchar la canción de Townes comienza a llorar mostrando su rostro una enorme tristeza. Aparece en  “Highway Heartworn”, un documental dirigido por James Szalapski donde muchos "Outlaws" se dan cita, y es de visión obligada para cualquier amante de la música que se precie. La canción se titula "Waitin' Around To Die" (Esperando a morir) y aparece en el album "For the Sake of the Song".
LETRA: Sometimes I don't know where this dirty road is taking me
Sometimes I can't even see the reason why
I guess I keep on gamblin', lots of booze and lots of ramblin'
It's easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die
One-time friends I had a ma, I even had a pa
He beat her with a belt once cause she cried
She told him to take care of me, she headed down to Tennessee
It's easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die
I came of age and found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
She cleaned me out and hit it on the sly
I tried to kill the pain, I bought some wine and hopped a train
Seemed easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die

A friend said he knew where some easy money was
We robbed a man and brother did we fly
The posse caught up with me, drug me back to Muskogee
It's two long years, just a-waitin' 'round to die

Now I'm out of prison, I got me a friend at last
He don't steal or cheat or drink or lie
His name's codeine, he's the nicest thing I've seen
Together we're gonna wait around and die
