Cursed band
God blessed with a bad hand
Shooting stars with the beautiful damned
Vain reload for one last stand

Church van
Broke down in the heartland
No-doze cramps on a highway trance
Drive straight through to Texarkan

Whoa Bandera
Whoa Bandera

Old boots bought second hand
Ten clams
Holey souls dance with a new fan
Under her bed for a one night stand

Whoa Bandera
Whoa Bandera

I swear if I'm going down, I'm going down loud
Love don't know my name
Slither, ride away
Long way home

Whoa Bandera
Whoa Bandera

Last stand
Slow dance in the quicksand
Black spit in a Lonestar can
Swatting flies in a four-piece rock band


from La Vie en Noir, released February 11, 2012
Produced by Dan Workman and Steve Christensen
