This definitely not country I wouldn't say....I have no idea what the hell it is but I like it long and have made the music work that way.......


He went there for the whiskey
She went for people time
He'd been watching her for weeks
Alone and looking fine

He finally approached her
Tried to make himself her choice
Didn't know she'd answer
With such an intense voice

Chorus 1
"Man set your restless mind at ease
Take a long look in these eyes
There's nothing here for you or me
To make me happy or you wise
Because food for talk is all I need
No cheap sex on the side."

There was a tumor in his virtue
And she could see it swell
He knew faking sainthood
Would never serve him well

He changed his style to friendship  
And smiled a nervous smile
Decided to surrender
And listen for a while

Chorus 2
He set his restless mind at ease
Took a long look in her eyes
There was nothing there that he could see
That one night loving would describe
And food for talk was all she'd need
No cheap sex on the side

She talked about that little bar
All the liquor and the flesh
She'd long ago decided
What was worthless what was best

All the men they'd come bidding
With fabricated pride
Thinking one night is a pardon
For the loneliness they hide


Bridge:
Oh she touched him with a heavy wand
His stars fell into order his naked fears gone
He learned about real beauty left the rest behind
His manhood and worries never less inclined  

Chorus 2
He set his restless mind at ease
Took a long look in her eyes
There was nothing there that he could see
That one night loving would describe
And food for talk was all she'd need
No cheap sex on the side

Ain't doin nothin at all
Just answerin the call
Kinda driftin away from it all~~~~~

Well I can hear Willie singing this as sure as there is daylight Eric! It is OLD country, from when I was a kid, or let me see ... we could send it to Joni, Peter, Paul and Mary, or simply keep singing it ourselves out loud until we are discovered (yeah, right but I loved it!)
