Pay me

by Tom Waits

They pay me not to come home
Keeping me stoned
I won´t run away
They say it´s easy to get
Stuck in this town
Just like Joan
You know I gave it all up for the stage
They fill my cup up in the cage
It´s nobody´s business but mine when I´m low
To hold yourself up is not a crime here you know
At the end of the world

I kick my foot at the lights
I breathe it in all night
There´s a light on a canvas tree
Money from home supporting me
They pay me not to come
I won´t eat crow
Ill stay away
And though all roads will not lead you home my girl
All roads lead to the end of the world
I sewed a little luck up in the hem of my gown
The only way down from the gallows is to swing
And I´ll wear boots instead of high heels
And the next stage that I am on it will have wheels
