    Temporary Saint
    (Warren Haynes)
    Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

    you ask me when I’m gonna return
    I ask you “why so much concern?”
    the same snakes that drive you from my bed
    turn to voices and drive me out of my head
    for fourteen days since you been back around
    trying to keep my spirits high and my demons down
    but, can’t you see
    you got to save me or set me free

    ’cause I’m falling in deeper – darkness, my old friend
    I’m in deeper – stay with me till the end
    deeper – you know I got no restraint
    I’m in deeper
    and lucky you
    you get to be my saint
    temporary saint

    cleaning up one more time is sure getting old
    why don’t you bury me like the dirt that’s in my soul
    what makes you think you could love me, anyway?
    ain’t nobody told you about the way I operate
    ain’t nobody told you, baby?
    well, I guess that makes you the only one

    ’cause I’m falling in deeper – darkness, my old friend
    I’m in deeper – stay with me till the end
    deeper – you know I got no restraint
    I’m in deeper
    and lucky you, yeh, lucky you
    you get to be my saint
    temporary saint

    angel of mercy, set me free
    do you really give a damn for me?

    ’cause I’m falling in deeper – darkness, my old friend
    I’m in deeper – stay with me till the end
    deeper – you know I got no restraint
    I’m in deeper

    Painted Silver Light
    (Warren Haynes)
    Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

    in the painted silver light
    I watched you gently move
    now, in the cold early dawn
    I long to have that vision in my head again
    conjure, as I may, my guilt won’t let me sleep
    now I know what it means
    to have and to hold
    to let go and to lose

    CHORUS
    in the screaming silence
    I try to lose myself
    but there is no hiding place
    no hiding place

    here they come again
    those voices, they’ll be with me till the end
    maybe it helps the pain
    how would I know?
    I never slow down long enough
    but, ain’t life funny
    I don’t know if I will ever see you again
    but, in the painted silver light
    I watched you
    and I’ll keep on watching you

    CHORUS
    REPEAT CHORUS

    seven days I watched the sun come rising
    no sleep for the wicked
    seven nights I lie awake
    while my mind drifted across valley and streams
    shadows everywhere
    still I search for some kind of sign
    but, in the painted silver light
    I’ll come running
    running

    CHORUS
    REPEAT CHORUS

    Say you try
    But you just can’t help your self
    Say you wanna feel special
    Man wanna make you feel like everybody else
    Take away your freedom
    Strip away your pride
    Say you know you weren’t born
    With the blue blood son
    So take your place in line

    Where’s my mule?
    Where’s my forty acres
    Where’s my dream
    Mr Emancipator
    To live this way
    I might as well meet my maker
    Where’s my mule?
    Where’s my mule?

    I say trust me
    But you say it’s too much bother
    Yeah, the way the man try to beat you down
    Make you wanna kill your brother
    So go on and bust me
    For what’s in my mason jar
    Yeah, I owes my soul
    To the company store
    How I’m doing so far?

    Where’s my mule?
    Where’s my forty acres
    Where’s my dream
    Mr Emancipator
    Live this way
    Might as well meet my maker
    Where’s my mule?
    Where’s my mule?

    Where’s my mule?
    Where’s my forty acres
    Where’s my dream
    Mr Emancipator
    Live this way
    Might as well meet my maker
    Where’s my, my, my, my, my, my mule?
