LyricsEdit

Highway Café of the Damned (1988)Edit

  • I was driving down the interstate through Winslow Arizona, I had seven vices on my mind:
    sloth and avarice
    fornication, television,
    whiskey, beer, and wine.
    • "Highway Café of the Damned"

Lizard Vision (1991)Edit

  • Jesus loves me, but he can't stand you.
    • "Jesus Loves Me (But He Can't Stand You)

Paint Me on Velvet (1993)Edit

  • All my friends are buried here, and some of them are dead.
    • "That Godforsaken Hellhole I Call Home"
  • If I never had existed... would you still remember me?
  • "1984 Blues"

Drugs I Need (2006)Edit

  • You say your God is the one true God
    but my one God is the one true God,
    I don't want to hear about your one God,
    'cause my one God's the one.
    • "One True God"
  • It's hard to find a banjo player up in Heaven —
    There's some things even Jesus won't forgive.
    • "Banjo Pickers in Heaven"
