Check Out Time

This song is by Yonder Mountain String Band and appears on the album Town By Town (2001).

Hotel keys are what I'm holding.
It's room number 225.
Hotel keys are what I'm holding.
I'm here but I'm barely alive.

Had a hotel room in Tennessee.
What the hell is going on below me?
Voices scattered in rows
Up through the floors.
Silence was shattered
By the slamming of the doors.

Well a busted sign said "Vacancy."
It all seemed like a mess to me.
All I wanted was a good night's rest.
I'm sick and I'm tired
And I couldn't care less.


It's gonna come quick that quarter till four
It's ten after three
And I just spilled some more.
Red light numbers are set
And it's gonna be sad.
I won't get no sleep
For a deal that's gone bad.

When the headlights came,
It was over fast.
They were out of there
By a quarter past.
Yeah I know they all went down the line.
Blood-shot eyes at check out time.

I'm here but I'm barely alive
