Chief Waukenon Motel

From the album Crooked Path

Song clip



Chief Waukenon Motel ©2007  Michael Jerling


He was drunk on Easter Sunday
In the middle of the afternoon
Watched him cross the lot to the Mini Mart
From my little motel room

If he’s lookin’ for a six pack
It’s one cold day in hell
When you’ll buy beer on Sunday
In the middle of the Bible Belt

Ragtaggle Gypsy
Wanderin’ Jew
Where have you gone Chief Waukenon
It’s just me and you

When first I found this motel
I was drivin’ through the rain
Used to be a Mom & Pop
Now it is a chain

The big sign is gone now
Noble red man’s head
Feathers all in neon
Pink and green and red

Ragtaggle Gypsy
Wanderin’ Jew
Where have you gone Chief Waukenon
It’s just me and you

Nearby in a small town
They’re prayin’, holdin’ hands
Then it’s pass the biscuits
The chicken and the ham

I’m flippin’ through the channels
Tryin’ not to think
Wishin’ I was back home
And I could get a drink

Ragtaggle Gypsy
Wanderin’ Jew
Where have you gone Chief Waukenon
It’s just me and you 

Back
