lyrics

Heading East out to the Coast - Nailed my Heart on your front post
You swore to me you'd make it better but you broke my heart and you tore my sweater
You slammed your fist into my face and then yah left me there, what a disgrace

But that's all right baby cuz you wouldn't want me now
I left your ghost 1000 miles away
And in your heart you wouldn't let me stay
I left your ghost 1000 miles away
Baby you swore you'd make it better

You may be more of a man than me but I know to give love and take it for free
You kept my steel it was a fine guitar, you'll carry that sin wherever you are
An hour south is too far now but the distance would only make this more sour

But that's all right baby cuz you wouldn't want me now
I left your ghost 1000 miles away
And in your heart you wouldn't let me stay
I left your ghost 1000 miles away
Baby you swore you'd make it better
