The Beauty Way - Eliza Gilkyson
My Daddy made a pretty damn good living playing music on the beauty way
He’s gonna die with some money in his pocket
Wish I could the same today little darlin’
Wish I could do the same today
Wide-eyed kid and a little transistor, tuned in to Wolfman Jack
I picked up a guitar, heard the sirens whisper
And I never looked back little darlin’
And I never looked back
I worked the clubs along the Sangre de Cristos, polished a diamond in the rough
By the time I hit LA I was hotter than a pistol
But you’re never hot enough little darlin’
You’re never really hot enough
I’ve felt the lights on the big, big stages, a fire burning in my soul
I had those night where my guitar was raging
It’s not something you control little darlin’
It’s not something you control
Red-tail diving for a rat on Sunset, coyotes pickin’ through the trash
I wish I was lying like a cat in the sun
Instead of working like a dog for the cash little darlin’
I’m only workin for the cash
Sometimes I wish I could unplug this cord and my soul or my money I could save
But every time I say I’m gonna quit the beauty way 
I feel my bones just turning in the grave little darlin’
Bones turning in the grave
