Counting Crows cover of a Gram Parsons song, from Underwater Sunshine (2012).
Won't you scratch my itch sweet Annie Rich
And welcome me back to town
Come out on your porch (or I'll) step into your parlor
And (I'll) tell you how it all went down.
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
And a good saloon in every single town
Oh, and I remember something you once told me
And I'll be damned if it did not come true
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
And they all lead me straight back home to you.
So I headed west to grow up with the country
Out across those praries with those waves of grain
And I saw my devil and I saw my deep blue sea
And I thought about a calico bonnet from Cheyenne to Tennessee.
Hey, we flew straight across that river bridge
Last night at half past two
The switchman waved his lantern goodbye and good luck
As we went rolling through.
Billboards and truckstops pass by the grievous angel
And now I know just what I have to do
The man on the radio won't leave me alone
He wants to take my money for something that I've never been shown
--- Instrumental ---
The news I could bring I met up with the king
On his head an amphetamine crown
He talked about unbuckling that old bible belt
And lit out for some desert town.
