      About "No Deal"

      Lyrics for Townes Van Zandt - "No Deal"

      Now this man down at the used car lot
      Tried to sell me four wheels and a trunk.
      I said, "Man, there is no engine!",
      He said, "The engine's just a bunch of junk.
      You don't need no engine to go downhill
      And I could plainly see, that that's the direction
      You're headed in", and he handed me the keyes.

      (I said) No deal; you can't sell this stuff to me
      No deal, I'm going back to Tennessee

      Well, I went to a doctor of the highest order,
      He said I couldn't have a drink for a year.
      One glass of wine on my birthday
      If my birthday wasn't too very near.
      Lord, he must have put me in a state of shock
      'cause I made it for about two weeks;
      Then he sent me a bill
      That knocked me flat off the wagon
      And back down on my feet.

      When true love knocked upon my door
      She'd just barely turned fifteen
      And I was a little bit nervous
      If you know just what I mean.
      But I've heard somewhere
      That true love conquers all
      And I figured that was that
      Then I started having dreams 'bout
      Being chased out of town
      Wearing nothing but my cowboy hat.

      Well, I come through this life a stumbler, my friends
      I expect to die that way
      It could be twenty years from now
      It could be most any day.
      But if there is no whiskey and women, Lord,
      Behind them heavenly doors
      I'm gonna take my chances down below,
      And of that you can be sure.
