lyrics

I got heartbreak by the bundle, I got pity by the pound
I got heartbreak by the bundle, I got pity by the pound
I got pity by the pound, step right up and come on down
Everybody's talkin' 'bout what I got for sale

My daddy was a brakeman, my mama was a train
My daddy was a brakeman, my mama was a train
My mama was a train, through wind and weather, shine or rain
Mountain or plateau or plain, over hill and dale

It's just as well, it's just as well
Don't are if it's poison if there's water in the well
It's just as well, it's just as well
You can't buy love but it's something you can sell

I've been climbing over fences and sleeping in my shoes
I've been climbing over fences and sleeping in my shoes
When I'm sleeping in my shoes, give me something I can use
Bent and empty, broke and bruised, honey, can't you tell

It's just as well, it's just as well
Don't are if it's poison if there's water in the well
It's just as well, it's just as well
You can't buy love but it's something you can sell

It's just as well, it's just as well
Don't are if it's poison if there's water in the well
It's just as well, it's just as well
You can't buy love but it's something you can sell

You can't buy love but it's something you can sell
You can't buy love but it's something you can sell
You can't buy love but it's something you can sell

about

Jack Hotel Lincoln, Nebraska

Jack Hotel contains multitudes. A listen to their sophomore release, Voices from the Moon, reveals a range that encompasses Ry Cooder and Leo Kottke, Gillian Welch and Townes Van Zandt, Mississippi John Hurt and Etta Baker--but this band is no mere product of its influences. Since their start in 2012, Jack Hotel has proven itself one of the best, and most original, folk acts in the midwest. ... more
