One Headlight

by Jakob Dylan

So long ago, I don't remember when

That's when they say I lost my only friend

Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease

As I listened through the cemetery trees

/ G D / F#m Bm / :

I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn

The long broken arm of human law

Now it always seemed such a waste, she always had a pretty face

So I wondered how she hung around this place


Hey, come on try a little, nothing is forever

There's got to be something better than iIn the middle

But me & Cinderella, we put it all together

We can drive it home with one headlight

/ G D / Em A / :

She said it's cold, it feels like Independence Day

And I can't break away from this parade

But there's got to be an opening somewhere here in front of me

Through this maze of ugliness and greed

And I seen the sun up ahead at the county line bridge

Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead

We'll run until she's out of breath, she ran until there's nothin' left

She hit the end-it's just her window ledge


Well this place is old, it feels just like a beat up truck

I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn

Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes, this place is always such a mess

Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn

I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else

Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same

But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams

I think her death it must be killin' me
