The Magnetic Fields - Two Characters in Search of a Country Song Lyrics


sponsored links
You were just like me
you were one big bruise
In the game of life with your playing too lose
You were Jessy James
I was William Tell
You were Daniel Webster
I was the devil himself

Two characters in search of a country song
Just make believe, but so in love
Two characters been listin' all night long
for voices from Nashville above

Hell in eighteen wheels
at a hundred per
We went crashing through the Jersey barrier
But the road went on
over dale and hill
You were Calamity Jane
and I was Wild Bill

Two characters in search of a country song
Just make believe, but so in love
Two characters been listin' all night long
for voices from Nashville above


Two characters in search of a country song
Just make believe, but so in love
Two characters been listin' all night long
for voices from Nashville above
