"MERCY (A HUNDRED MILES TO RICHMOND)" [2012]


A hundred miles to Richmond 

The road is straight 

There’s nothin’ left to figure out 

I filled up half the gas tank 

Would fill it all but 

I don’t wanna make you shout 

 

Honey Bunny, Butter Baby 

Say somethin’ sweet 

We’ve got an hour ‘til the signs start to show 

Honey Bunny, Maggie May 

I’ve got these cold feet 

Like my first time 

Under your clothes 

 

Fifty miles to Richmond 

I think I've burned a hole 

In the seat of your Ford 

I'm the only one who’s talking 

I can’t stand to feel like 

You’re feelin’ bored 

 

Honey Bunny, Butter Baby 

Turn up the song 

It’s the Boss and he’s strummin’ for change 

Honey Bunny, Maggie May 

I'll leave you alone 

If you need me 

I’ll be awake 

 

Give me mercy 

Show me mercy 

Give me mercy 

And I'll show you mercy 

 

Twenty miles to Richmond 

Your mother said I suck up 

And suck up well 

But now here at the end of it 

I've only gone and 

Sucked up into my shell 

 

Honey Bunny, Butter Baby 

Help me out here 

We’re monsters in our own bed-sheet caves 

Honey Bunny, Maggie May 

I'll leave you alone 

If you need me 

I’m always awake 

 

Give me mercy 

Show me mercy 

Give me mercy 

And I'll show you mercy 

 

Ten miles to Richmond 

I'm lookin' out the window 

So you can't see 

One mile to Richmond 

One mile before 

We're finally free
