Speed Trap Town Song Lyrics

She said it’s none of my business but it breaks my heart
Dropped a dozen cheap roses in my shopping cart
Made it out to the truck without breaking down
Everybody knows you in a speed trap town
It’s a Thursday night but theres a high school game

******

Sneak a bottle up the bleachers and forget my name
These 5a bastards run a shallow cross
It’s a boys last dream and a man’s first loss
And it never did occur to me to leave til tonight
There’s no one left to ask if i’m alright
I’ll sleep untill im straight enough to drive
And decide
If there’s anything that can’t be left behind

******

The doctor said daddy wouldn’t make it a year
But the holidays are over and he’s still here
How long can they keep you in the I.C.U
Veins through the skin like a faded tattoo

******

Was a tough state trooper til’ a decade back
When that girl who wasn’t momma caused his heart attack
He didn’t care about us when he was walkin around
Just pullin’ women over in a speed trap town

******

But it never did occur to me to leave
Til Tonight
When I realised he’ll never be alright
Sign my name and say my last goodbye
Then decide
There’s nothin’ here that can’t be left behind
Instrumental

******

Road got blurry when the sun came up
So I slept a couple hours in the pickup truck
Drank a cup of coffee by an Indian man
A thousand miles away from that speed trap town
A thousand miles away from that speed trap town.

Speed Trap Town Song Chords



She said “it’s none of my business but it breaks my heart”

Dropped a dozen cheap roses in my shopping cart

Made it out to the truck without breaking down

Everybody knows you in a speed trap town

It’s a Thursday night but there’s a high school game

Sneak a bottle up the bleachers and forget my name

These 5-A bastards run a shallow cross

It’s a boy’s last dream and a man’s first loss

And it never did occur to me to leave, ’til tonight

There’s no one left to ask if I’m all right

Sleep until I’m straight enough to drive, then decide

If there’s anything that can’t be left behind

The doctor said daddy wouldn’t make it a year

But the holidays are over and he’s still here

How long can they keep you in the ICU

Veins through the skin like a faded tattoo

Was a tough state trooper from a decade back

Till that girl who wasn’t mama caused his heart attack

He didn’t care about us when he was walkin’ around

Just pulling women over in a speed trap town

But it never did occur to me to leave, ’til tonight

When I realized he’ll never be all right

Sign my name and say my last goodbye, then decide

That there’s nothing here that can’t be left behind


Roads got blurry when the sun came up

Slept a couple hours in the pickup truck

Drank a cup of coffee by an Indian mound

Thousand miles away from that speed trap town

Thousand miles away from that speed trap town
