NO MORE PRISONERS
Patty Griffin


I wonder when the summer started smellin' so bad

He woke up one morning and it seemed that way

He thought of that woman and it got him so mad

-- had to hold him to keep him away

There had to be something he could do about this

Then the feeling came on him like a shot

As soon as the woman -- taken

From me every last thing I got


Tell me, where do we go from here

Tell me, where do we go from here

There ain't no more pioneers

And the pain is so clear


His heart is beating fast as a child's

Those voices from his past, they were calling

They were saying what they always do to get him more riled

He opens the door and starts falling

Then the call comes through on 9-1-1

And got him --, just another day baby

Then this woman starts screaming that he's got a gun

He's gonna blow her and her children all away


Can you tell me, where do we go from here

Tell me, where do we go from here

There ain't no more pioneers

And the pain is so clear


Policemen are down in the parking lot

And they'll come running, baby, when they hear the first shot

They're gonna kick down the door and hear it ring twice

Here's your one last chance to do somethin' nice


Can you tell me, where do we go from here

Tell me, where do we go from here

There ain't no more pioneers

And the pain is so clear

I wonder when the summer started

I wonder when the summer started

I wonder when the summer started

Smellin' so bad, baby
