Lucero - The Match Lyrics


He’d been thrown out the front door
Hit the ground hard
Now he knelt in the gravel lot
Just outside the bar

He heard the sound of her hooves
Between the cars
A pure white doe at the edge of the woods
Watching him in the dark

When he looked up she bolted
She ran down the hill
He chased after her through the old cedar trees
Was not sure she was real

It’s whiskey and religion
It’s guilty as a dog
It’s the wolves outside your kitchen
It’s the fuse and the cannonball
It’s the match knocks down your wall

At the edge of a lake
The white deer was suddenly gone
Just the moon on the hills
A dream all along

But then he heard crying
Turned his head to see
A beautiful girl in a white gown
She told him that she’d lost her ring

In the lake she pointed
He waded out and dove in
Dove down three times — third time came up
With the ring in his hand

It’s whiskey and religion
It’s guilty as a dog
It’s the wolves outside your kitchen
It’s the fuse and the cannonball
It’s the match knocks down your wall

He collapsed on the shore
He was no longer young
The witch took the ring and laughed over him said
My friend you are done

I’m the bringer of pain
For the wrongs you have done
He was too weak he could not move
And again she was gone

It’s whiskey and religion
It’s guilty as a dog
It’s the wolves outside your kitchen
It’s the fuse and the cannonball
It’s the match knocks down your wall

He awoke the next morning
Stood up on the rocks
Looked at his hands they were young again
He climbed the hill back to his truck
