KISS THE CHILDREN
Gram Parsons


Well, it's said my life has been so free and easy

But I'll tell you now the story isn't so

'Cause I've spent a lot of time down on the corner

Tasting tears and spilling whiskey on the floor

Such a shame that it's so hard for me to tell the truth to you

but by now you know the kind of man I am

So don't turn your pretty face away from me, dear

'Cause there's kids in this game don't understand


-Instrumental-


One more night like this would put me six feet under

But my heart would still be fighting for your love

Just remember little darlin' that I love you

And kiss the cildren for me please, before you go

So don't play this crazy game with me no longer

'Cause I won't be able to resist my rage

And the gun that's hanging on the kitchen wall, dear

Is like a roadsign pinting straight to Satan's cage

And the gun that's hanging on the kitchen wall, dear

Is like a roadsign pointing straight to Satan's cage
