about

Songwriters need songwriter friends and I was lucky enough to have had a fantastic friend in Dave McArtney. He wrote a song called "The Leather Tongue Motel" and I was inspired by his title to write my own version, here it is.

lyrics

Leather Tongue Motel

You wake up in a fever your boots still on your feet
As naked as a napkin your clothes dropped in a heap
With the curtains pulled, there’s no need to think, you can pour yourself a drink
Leaning on the mirror above the bathroom sink

Line them up
Knock them down
Play them fast

One more leather tongue motel (x3)

A waitress on a bender has crashed out in a chair
She’s sleeping off the party a blonde mess of hair
With her mountain eyes, she reminded you, of a river running true
Fresher than a flower shining in the morning dew

One more leather tongue motel (x3)

The desert sky is raining sand
You got one hand on the wheel
Listening to highway 61 singing how…
How does it feel?

The concert is a screamer the crowd yells out for more
You give them what they’re wanting a sing-a-long encore
With the lights up full, you can see them all, they’re dancing in the hall
Walking from the venue you can hear them call

Line them up
Knock them down
Play them fast

One more leather tongue motel (x3)
