Dennis

Got a good job on the highway
Doing construction at the summer's end
A good job gone, that same month
When the boss caught me drinking again
One position open, you threw your name in the well
And when your luck turned up, I can't say I didn't wish you hell

Dennis the white line gleams unbroken by your fall
You came to this world on 70 West
And tonight it'll bring you home
There ain't nothing I wouldn't do
To take that night away from you
Break the pavement that crushed your wild heart
Carry you through these small streets
To the bed where our mother sleeps
And lay me down on the highway in the dark

While you were sailing on through
Did it ever cross your mind
That you were always the perfect one and I was always trailing behind?
Every time you made our mama laugh
I was sure to make her cry
And nobody said but I knew
they picked the wrong one to die

Chorus

Keeping that picture of you
with your fingers in my hair
Leaning on dad's Sonoma when your glasses caught the glare
There ain't nothing I wouldn't do

To take that night away from you
Break the pavement that crushed your wild heart
