Charlie parr - Walking back from willmar

The steeple in the distance is lit by a neon cross
The steeple in the distance is lit by a neon cross
But when he got to the door for mercy's sake, he found it to be locked

Tony was a security officer down at the trailer yard
Tony was a security officer down at the trailer yard
He lived in an abandoned reefer, at the far end of the trailer lot

Sometimes he'd come to town, a stray dog trailing at his heels
Sometimes he'd come to town, a stray dog trailing at his heels
All the stray dogs love Tony because he knows exactly how it feels


He might ask you for some change, Lord knows he's a volunteer
He might ask you for some change, Lord knows he's a volunteer
Keeping an eye out for his family, keeping all his close friends near

Sleeping down on the cold ground will wear your muscles out
Sleeping down on the cold ground will wear your muscles out
There ain't nothing colder than the agent's heart when he's kicking you off that Willmar shot

Tony says he'll tramp down south but no one's seen him make a move to leave
Tony says he'll tramp down south but no one's seen him make a move to leave
He just shrugs his shoulders and smiles how he'll catch out next spring

The steeple in the distance is lit by a neon cross
The steeple in the distance is lit by a neon cross
But when he got to the door for mercy's sake, he found it to be locked
