Lyrics

FORTYMILE

VERSE 1:
You’re trouble, but nothing this big man can’t handle
I’ve never turned down a good gamble, I’ve laid it all out on the table
Yeah, you warned me, the law on your heels, you’ve been running
And unless I keep up, you’ll be gone again
Behind bars or headed for the boundary

PRE-CHORUS:
So I got us a bed on the riverboat
Wherever you’re gonna be, is where we’ll both go

CHORUS:
Lay down tight, little actress
Hide your pretty head, little actress
Sip some whiskey, go to sleep a while
And we’ll be safe by the time we reach Fortymile

VERSE 2:
You need me, and one of these days you’ll believe me
Or you might turn around and deceive me
But I’ve got something that might make you keep me

PRE-CHORUS:
See, I staked a claim near a place called Nome
Before the end of the year, we’ll be swimming in gold

CHORUS:
Lay down tight, little actress
Hide your pretty head, little actress
Sip some whiskey, go to sleep a while
And we’ll be safe by the time we reach Fortymile

BRIDGE:
So when the men in red come to our door
Hold your breath and be still, just a little while more

CHORUS:
Lay down tight, little actress
Hide your pretty head, little actress
Sip some whiskey, go to sleep a while
And we’ll be safe by the time we reach Fortymile
Fortymile, Fortymile, oh oh, Fortymile, yeah
