My baby left me for the north country Where the wintry wind does blow Oh I wait at home, where time has never passed so slowly Way down south in North Carolina Where the moon hangs bright and low Oh, I move the days along, workin’ my fingers to the bone I’ll be a’waitin when you come on home, home to me I’ve kept the fires burnin’ way down low Oh come home to me The days are shorter and the nights are long The hours go crawlin’ by Oh hang my head and cry How I’m longin’ for my darlin’ I keep on listenin’ for our key in the door While I drive myself insane Oh in my arms once more The world will be set right again I’ll be a’waitin when you come on home, home to me I’ve kept the fires burnin’ way down low Oh come home to me My baby left me for the north country Where the wintry wind does blow Oh I wait at home, where time has never passed so slowly

The Nail 03:13
Why don’t you go ahead and grab your shovel Finish that beer and grab another And get your ass outside and dig a hole A hole big enough for little ol’ me 2 foot wide by 3 foot deep Cos this constant misery is gettin’ old You’re never ever home and when you are What was once a happy home becomes a bar When I think about the end and boy I think about it often I can’t decide which one of us will be the nail in this here coffin We’re a twelver in and doin’ shots Cursin’ God and castin’ lots Why don’t you get your ass outside and dig a hole Find your bottle if you’re able Drink your ass under the table The whole damn thing has gone unstable like you are You’re never ever home and when you are What was once a happy home becomes a bar When I think about the end and boy I think about it often I can’t decide which one of us will be the nail in this here coffin I ain’t your last you ain’t my first You can’t decide which fact is worse Why don’t you get your ass outside and dig a hole This headache’s gonna break my heart The hand break broke and the truck won’t start You got me playin’ the dead man’s card, dear lord You’re never ever home and when you are What was once a happy home becomes a bar When I think about the end and boy I think about it often I can’t decide which one of us will be the nail in this here coffin I can’t decide which one of us will be the nail in this here coffin

Heal Me 03:08
There’s a hole in my heart ain’t nothin’ here can fill But I just keep thinkin’ surely the whiskey will And if I keep on drinkin’ ‘til daybreak finds my windowsill Surely the whiskey will I got a hole in my heart Cos I been doin’ wrong My whole lifelong I’ve had a bad feeling I got a wound so deep inside me my whole lifetime Ain’t enough time To heal me There’s a fever in my bones no man-made medicine can cure But I just keep thinkin’ surely the whiskey will And if I keep on drinkin’ ’til daybreak stops the whippoorwill Surely the whiskey will I got a hole in my heart Cos I been doin’ wrong My whole lifelong I’ve had a bad feeling I got a wound so deep inside me my whole lifetime Ain’t enough time To heal me

Sidelong 04:10
I came here to be all alone To drink away my troubles on my own Nobody knows me in this place I’m just another lost and lonesome face And I ain’t known for takin’ chances But I been catchin’ all your long, sidelong glances I didn’t come here to be seen But I can feel your eyes burning holes in me And maybe I’ve wanted you For a long, long lonely time, too And I ain’t known for takin’ chances But I been catchin’ all your long, sidelong glances I don’t need nobody to set my world on fire I’d rather die all alone than settle for a liar If I let myself take a chance on you and step on the wire I’ll be steppin’ sidelong

No Name 03:06
Many moons ago before the west was won And the law was just the youngest man with the fastest gun I was the tyrant of the desert, the sultan of the plains With a golden palomino for the golden suzerain I didn’t ride with Shotgun Betty, didn’t ride with Jesse James I didn’t ride with wanted outlaws, didn’t ride with outlaw gangs You’ll never find my name though you may look For my name is only found in the Devil’s book I leave a wake of death behind me a thousand miles wide A thousand rivers of blood and tears the dying cried I remember every plea for mercy begged in vain I am the Great Separator and the instrument of pain I didn’t ride with Shotgun Betty, didn’t ride with Jesse James I didn’t ride with wanted outlaws, didn’t ride with outlaw gangs You’ll never find my name though you may look For my name is only found in the Devil’s book I was the tyrant of the desert, the sultan of the plains With a golden palomino for the golden suzerain I’ve killed more living souls than the Devil can claim And I’ll kill a thousand more because I have no name I didn’t ride with Shotgun Betty, didn’t ride with Jesse James I didn’t ride with wanted outlaws, didn’t ride with outlaw gangs You’ll never find my name though you may look For my name is only found in the Devil’s book You’ll never find my name You’ll never find my name You’ll never find my name For my name is only found in the Devil’s book

I’m drinkin’ water tonight cause I drank all the whiskey this morning Drank the whiskey this morning cos my baby, she ain’t comin’ home Drinkin’ water tonight cos I drank all the whiskey this morninh Last night she went up to the bar Said she met some big country star She said he likes to make love when he’s smokin’ And he don’t walk around like he’s broken And he sings just like Dwight Yoakam My baby she left me she took all her things when she went Left me standin’ out in the rain and didn’t look back Drinkin’ water tonight cos I drank all the whiskey this mornin’ She left me nothin’ but heartache and tears She took every last one of my good years She said he likes to make love when he’s smokin’ And he don’t walk around like he’s broken And he sings just like Dwight Yoakam Drinkin’ water tonight cos I drank all the whiskey this mornin’ Drank the whiskey this morning cos my baby, she ain’t comin’ home

This old world ain’t been kind to me And no matter how I try I can’t seem to change my stars And though they shine bright they only bring me misery Misery without company I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow But for now the only thing keepin’ my chin up is this bottle This life of mine is out to do me in It lies in wait up ahead at every turn If I started thinkin’ that I could take it on and win It would only prove that I’ll never learn I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow But for now the only thing keepin’ my chin up is this bottle The weight of finding out there is no cure For every moment up ’til now I’ve lived before I will carry with me to a lonely grave Misery without company Misery without company I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow I’m fixin’ to dry out tomorrow But for now the only thing keepin’ my chin up is this bottle

Sure wish I could forgive you as quickly As it seems you can forget me But I got this feelin’ it’ll take me some time There’s only one thing to do and that’s to drink you off my mind I keep on thinkin’ that it’s over so move on And that you ain’t so great so why hold on I guess you meant more to me than even I knew at the time There’s only one thing to do and that’s to drink you off my mind So I’m gettin’ wasted in the corner of a bar I know for sure you never go to And I’m gonna drink Kentucky whiskey ’til I’m fucked up to the point that there’s no damn chance of me Tryin’ to drive to your place The way that I been livin’ is a sin And I wish they’d come and haul me off to prison Ain’t no way that it can be that much different Than this solitary confinement you got me in So I’m gettin’ wasted in the corner of a bar I know for sure you never go to And I’m gonna drink Kentucky whiskey ’til I’m fucked up to the point that there’s no damn chance of me Tryin’ to drive to your place

One more dance with the Devil One more shot of whiskey One more heapin’ dose of trouble One more sad, sad song It’s always only just one more I don’t know what I leave the light on for Nothin’ feels right but doin’ wrong anymore Nothin’ feels right but doin’ wrong anymore Nothin’ feels right but doin’ wrong anymore One more one night stand One more upper in my hand One more make it a double One more bridge to burn It’s always only just one more I don’t know what I leave the light on for Nothin’ feels right but doin’ wrong anymore Nothin’ feels right but doin’ wrong anymore Nothin’ feels right but doin’ wrong anymore One more ain’t gonna hurt you none One more means you’re never done One more day without sun One more sad, sad song It’s always only just one more I don’t know what I leave the light on for Nothin’ feels right but doin’ wrong anymore Nothin’ feels right but doin’ wrong anymore Nothin’ feels right but doin’ wrong anymore

Fuck Up 03:21
It’s hard to wake up in the mornin’ when I just crawled into bed With bad memories and alcohol swimming in my head My mama used to tell me to buck up I guess I’m just too much of a fuck up I can’t cry myself to sleep so I drink myself to death I got cocaine in my bloodstream and whiskey on my breath Ain’t a thing that I can change to get my luck up I guess I’m just too much of a fuck up If you tell me what it is that makes your life worth livin’ I’ll be obliged to find a single damn that I’ll be givin’ With the cards that I been dealt I can’t win to save my life I’m lousy in a fist fight even if I have a knife Ain’t a thing that I can change to get my luck up God never makes mistakes he just makes fuck ups If you tell me what it is that makes your life worth livin’ I’ll be obliged to find a single damn that I’ll be givin’ Ain’t a thing that I can change to get my luck up God never makes mistakes he just makes fuck ups Well I guess I’m just too much of a fuck up

Well I went all the places Mama told me not to go And I did all the things that Mama told me not to do And I found all the women you’d be crazy to take home But I’m gonna make it up to Mama With this Mother/Heart tattoo I’m gonna make it Make it up to Mama I’m gonna make it Make it up to Mama Well I killed a man for lookin’ at me wrong And buried my friend for tryin’ to talk me down And I wasted my inheritance on hookers and booze But I’m gonna make it up to Mama With this Mother/Heart tattoo I’m gonna make it Make it up to Mama I’m gonna make it Make it up to Mama Mama don’t you know that I am sorry for the way I let you down You done right by me the best you can, somehow I still turned out like my old man I’m gonna make it Make it up to Mama I’m gonna make it Make it up to Mama

I’m driving down this highway and I’m doing mighty well Staying in between the lines as best as I can tell There’s just one thing on my mind I’m drinking beer and seeing stars and smoking cigarettes Passing mighty city lights and trying to forget Everything that’s on my mind Ain’t no road I like as well as the road that leads to you Ain’t no road I’m bound for hell gonna travel with the way that I do Travel with the way that I do I tried to hide my feelings but I find I can’t pretend I wanna love you till the day I die until the bitter end There’s just one thing on my mind I had you at hello you had me standing at my door Watching as you drove away and wondering what for I didn’t wanna go back inside Ain’t no road I like as well as the road that leads to you Ain’t no road I’m bound for hell gonna travel with the way that I do Travel with the way that I do

about

Sarah Shook & the Disarmers Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Sarah Shook & The Disarmers are a country band with a sneer, a bite, and no apologies. Shook's original songs take on the usual country spin on shitty relationships, bad decisions, and excessive alcohol consumption for damn good reasons.
