You'll never get to heaven if you don't stop talking
And it's just a waste of time when there's no one there
It's just a little fever, don't you worry
It'll keep you warm in the cool night air

You'll never get to heaven if that dog keeps howling
And it's not at a man or a cat or the moon
Save your breath and just keep walking
The sun'll be rising sometime soon

All your friends are down, or long gone out of town
You were the only one crazy enough to stay
Except for maybe me and that howling dog makes three
What you want to go to heaven for anyway?

You'll never get to heaven if you don't stop drinking
And it's a little too late to make that list
This time of night, nobody's laughing
And it gets so quiet, you can hear a kiss

You'll never get to heaven till the season's over
And nothing but the husk and the hull remain
When that fever breaks, you will get colder
Till you're the same temperature as the rain

bill morrisey, winter whiskey sipping music. where is greg brown when you need him?

 
I'm liking this a bit, although I can't shake the "Tom Waits + a few octaves" - oh well, I'll rate at 6 and see when BillG plays again in the mix.  Long Live RP!!

He sounds like someone's grandpappy.

A. Morrisey has a lot of talent, scads of it. B. Morrissey is a great songwriter... C. Morrissey gives the impression he thinks so highly of himself that he scarcely needs me to do the same, so I don't. That being said, I love a lot of the stuff he and The Smith's have done... but as a person, Morrisey, the poser, annoys me to no end. Cheers Jacques Radio Paradise:
I think you may have Steven Patrick Morrissey in mind... not Bill Morrissey. Both talented, but only one played with The Smiths.
Morrissey's such a funny guy. :propeller:

Bill Morrissey writes great stuff, but he should have become a rap artist with his voice. Samiyam
It\'s great to hear Leon Redbone again. Oh it\'s not him... oops..
I like the music okay, but I don\'t really care for this guy\'s voice.
