Lyrics
Blood And Dust
2009 Greg Swartzentruber/Neil Cotton

She met him in a honky tonk
Way out past the county line
With a full moon hanging orange
One late October night
He tipped his hat to her
Then flashed a wicked grin
She ignored his steely gaze
Still somehow he lured her in
He said, you should walk away
But follow if you must
Just know I leave behind me
A trail of blood and dust

I've been out here ridin' trail
More years than you have known
I've turned fresh young faces
Into lost and tortured souls
I'm not quite what I appear
Then he flashed a fangy grin
She'd already lost the fight
She gave her neck to him
Powerless to walk away
He feasted on her trust
Then he left her behind him
On his trail of blood and dust

Somewhere a lone coyote
Howled for her in prayer
But her soul drained of life
Vanished in the autumn air

If you meet her in a honky tonk
Way out past the county line
With the full moon hanging orange
Some late October night
Don't tip your hat to her
If she flashes you a grin
Because her fresh young face
Is just a way to lure you in
Know that you should walk away
Though you feel the pull of lust
Or you'll be left behind her
On her trail of blood and dust

Somewhere a lone coyote
Howls into the air
Just turn round, walk away
Or you haven't got a prayer
