Gateway Motel
Gateway Motel
You'd hock your gun for bullets before you realize
I've got a tongue like the devil and mouth full of lies
16 the streets turned me upside down
blurred the lines between right and wrong

I'm hidin out and layin low
I've got the next sucker lined up to go
I'm cooking up the next story that sells
another night at the gateway motel

Spent six months in county
Penny never come through
she wrote her nights got lonely
what's a girl to do?

Never treated her or that kid to kind
they shine like a diamond to the blind

I'll say a prayer for you Sidney
was the last thing my momma said
watched her taillights fade like a dream
I just hung my head

Felt a dirty conscience weigh a ton
It's too late to change the things I've done
