Robert Earl Keen, Jr. Let the Music Play Lyrics

Put the horses in the stable
Load the mules on the train
Set your pistols on the table
leave the dogs out in the rain
Take the money that they gave you
Hide it in a mason jar
Nobody now can save you
It don’t matter where you are
Turn your light down low
hear the four wins blow
bow your head to pray
it ain’t what you planed
you got one last stand
let the music play
Left for dead in southern Georgia
at the hands of hapless john
with your baby waitin’ for ya’
You were.... before the dawn
you know your shakin hands wil
when your mouth is goin dry
when that law man back in datin
wouldn’t look you in the eye
He was nothing but a drifter
and he came to play the part
disquised as luke the drifter
talk about a cheatin heart
when he rode into your town
same old indian giver
struck a match and burned. .. down
