PAINT THE TOWN BEIGE Robert Earl Keen - 1992 I gave up the fast lane for a blacktop county road. Just burned out on all that talk about the motherlode. I traded for a songbird and a bigger piece of sky. When I miss the good old days I can't imagine why. CHORUS: Still I get restless and drive into town I cruise once down Main Street and turn back around. It's crazy but God knows I don't act my age like an old desperado who paints the town beige. Down along the river and past the swimming hole you can find your piece of mind with just a fishin' pole. And you can walk the river for miles and miles on end and never stop believin' in that dream around the bend. CHORUS: Still I get restless and drive into town my radio playin' my window rolled down. It's crazy but God knows I don't act my age like an old desperado who paints the town beige. Deep down in the winter time slows to a crawl. There's really nothin' much to do until the first spring thaw. It's then I get to thinkin' I must have gone insane. Memories roll through my mind like a long slow railroad train. CHORUS: Still I get restless and drive into town watch the world through a windshield as it all comes unwound. It's crazy but God knows I don't act my age like an old desperado who paints the town beige.
