One Stiff Breeze
written by John Hiatt

What's that coming on your mind, you joking?
What's that sneaking up behind, you smoking?
What's that burnin’ down the line, you stoking’?
What's that got you in a bind, you choking?

I can't find you anywhere
Stone white skin and fiery hair
Think you'd stand out in a crowd
With that laugh you laugh out loud


Shadows slip through shifting light
'Til the air is black with night
Endless tears and mournful sighs
Sure could use your flashlight eyes


All this time we've come across
All we've gained and all we've lost
Just a little pile of dust
One stiff breeze and you've got us

I love you
I love you
I love you

Recorded October 5, 2017
