Another rock to mine

With nary a dime in my pocket
I set out for a less painful wreck
With Mayís motherís motherís locket
Around the sun burned ring on my neck

I saw thereís work across the river
Digging trenches by the freight train yard
Mayís dreams always brought me a shiver
And I knew staying here would be hard

Chorus
So I hunt another rock to mine
But itís not diamonds, silver or gold
Thereís a glow in the dark that I pine
For and hope sheíll be my love to hold

Elements faded carnival sign
On whatís left of a lightning struck tree
Beggars and bruisers forming a line
Stretching as far as the eye can see

I spot the smile of a red haired lass
In a cantina pushing a mop
I knew not much time would dare go pass
Till we left running for the pawn shop

Repeat Chorus
