Nine Steps Down  The Band of Heathens

Nine Steps Down
By The Band Of Heathens
Written By Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist
[D]Nine steps down on a ten story [G]ride
[D]One part love and [A]two parts [D]pride
[D]Three tons of steel and four miles to [G]go
[D]Sinking them down in the [A]Gulf of Mexi[D]co
[D]Rigged on point, top of the [G]tower
[D]Watch for those waves they‚??ll b[A]e risin[D]g fast
[D]Call from the driller down on the [G]shore
[D]Derrickhand you better keep [A]pumping that [D]gas
[G]No time to think of the girls in their cotton
[D]Dresses they wear in the early springtime
[G]Memories here they‚??re all long forgotten
[G]Nine steps down on a [A]ten story [D]ride
[A]Nine steps down on a ten story [D]ride
All of the boys thought you were a beauty
My motivation was a little less kind
Come with me I got something to show you
Out past the trees where the river runs wild
My oh my you were more than I bargained
For one time at the five and dime
Spending all my nickels and quarters
One part love and two parts pride
Put the hammer on down, we might just make it
Watch your eyes from drifting off the road
Drink ‚??em on down five for a dollar
Get it to the man with the weekly load
The rubber on the tires burning like a matchstick
Blacklist heart on a long ride home
Ain‚??t no god just a lifetime of Sundays
Three tons of steel and four miles to go
Water rising all around your mind
The slack pulling fast but you try to stay loose
There‚??s a storm rolling in on New Orleans
Gonna string everybody in a hang man‚??s noose
Nine steps down on a ten story ride
One part love and two parts pride
Three tons of steel and four miles to go
Sinking them down in the Gulf of Mexico
