Trembling Leaves

This song is by Richmond Fontaine and appears on the album Miles From (1997).

He got off work and waited at the bus stop
When three men in a black two door Ford
Sedan pulled up and asked him if he needed a ride
Well he got in the back seat but they were
Drinking tequila so he told them that they
Could drop him off on 7th street
That didn't have to go downtown
But they headed out on the road

City of Trembling Leaves
City of Trembling Leaves
There is no greater distance
Than from you to me

Two days later they were some place in Idaho
And the wind mixed with the snow
Made such a terrible sound
And it was then that he fell asleep
It was there that he fell asleep
And when he woke hours later
They were throwing him in the trunk

He could hear the sound of the radio
He could smell the exhaust fumes form the engine
And from a rust hole in the trunk he
Could see the snow blow by

To be under sober sky
Where the air is cool and dry
To be at the Gold N' Silver
My Mom's boyfriend and I

City of Trembling Leaves
City of Trembling Leaves
There is no greater distance
Than from you to me
