No Rest For The Wicked

I’ve never seen so bright a sunrise
Or felt the rain so innocent
Some kicking wind did try to haunt me
This dawn remains magnificent

Last night I saw the ghost of Elvis
Beg for the rest he’s long deserved
If you tease a heart that’s hungry
Your weary spirit is preserved

No rest for the wicked

Just twilight halfway through Nebraska
The bitter road upon my tongue
It feels at least a month since Denver
And sage is lighting up my lungs

900 miles into the sunrise
Twin Falls a distant memory
Deep in the hills of South Dakota
I sing the same old melody

No rest for the wicked
