Nine Steps Down

Nine steps down on a ten story ride
One part love and two parts pride
Three tons of steel and four miles to go
Sinking them down in the Gulf of Mexico

Rigged on point, top of the tower
Watch for those waves they’ll be rising fast
Call from the driller down on the shore
Derrickhand you better keep pumping that gas
No time to think of the girls in their cotton
Dresses they wear in the early springtime
Memories here they’re all long forgotten
Nine steps down on a ten story ride

All of the boys thought you were a beauty
My motivation was a little less kind
Come with me I got something to show you
Out past the trees where the river runs wild
My oh my you were more than I bargained
For one time at the five and dime
Spending all my nickels and quarters
One part love and two parts pride

Put the hammer on down, we might just make it
Watch your eyes from drifting off the road
Drink ‘em on down five for a dollar
Get it to the man with the weekly load
The rubber on the tires burning like a matchstick
Blacklist heart on a long ride home
Ain’t no god just a lifetime of Sundays
Three tons of steel and four miles to go

Water rising all around your mind
The slack pulling fast but you try to stay loose
There’s a storm rolling in on New Orleans
Gonna string everybody in a hang man’s noose
Nine steps down on a ten story ride
One part love and two parts pride
Three tons of steel and four miles to go
Sinking them down in the Gulf of Mexico
