      About "Fast As I Can"

      Lyrics for James McMurtry - "Fast As I Can"

      He was a drinking man with a guitar problem
      Didn't have a dollar to his name
      He didn't seem to mind it all that often
      He mostly took whatever came

      And if it came too late or it came to nothing
      He'd swear beneath his breath
      There's gotta be something to it
      There's gotta be something to it

      She lost her mind and she never missed it
      Folks all said she'd never learn
      She'd take the path of least resistance
      Right to the point of no return

      Apprehended on occasion, got off easy every time
      Said there's gotta be something to it, something to it
      Don't know why else
      She want to put herself through it

      When your nights are getting colder
      Restless as the wind
      I'll be coming over
      Fast as I can, fast as I can

      Well, he had some lines but he never used 'em
      She didn't need much talking to
      And he thought he'd died and gone to Houston
      By the time the dawn burned off the dew

      And they lit right up like Roman candles
      Like fire and gasoline
      There must've been something to it, something to it
      Didn't mess around, they just had to get right to it

      When your nights are getting colder
      Restless as the wind
      I'll be coming over
      Fast as I can, fast as I can

      For a while they carried on like rabbits
      They'd disappear for days and nights
      You might say they learned each other's habits
      You might say that became their life

      And life wasn't long, life wasn't easy
      Life wasn't cheap, life wasn't fair
      And there might have been something to it
      There might have been something to it

      When your nights are getting colder
      Restless as the wind
      I'll be coming over
      Fast as I can, fast as I can

      When your nights are getting colder
      Restless as the wind
      I'll be coming over
      Fast as I can, fast as I can
