Junkyard

Junkyard is a hard rock/sleaze rock band formed in 1987 in Los Angeles, with members formerly in Minor Threat, The Necros, and Dag Nasty. The band has often drawn comparisons with Guns N' Roses (which, like Junkyard, signed with Geffen Records). more »

You can take a boy out of the filth
But that don't make him clean
You've made my life easier, baby
But that don't make it any less obscene

Just `cause you're acting so nice
Don't mean you'll get a thing from me
Don't throw your pennies in the wishing well
`Cause what you get, is what you receive

Lord, I'm a simple man
Ain't too much I need
Well, I ain't askin for all of your love
Give me what ya can
And set me free

You screamed and cried all night long
Lord, you're killing me
I never meant to put you down
And never gave you any reason to grieve

Sometimes when I feel so boxed in
I wanna go and take a ride
I Grab the keys and my cigarettes
And disappeared into the night

Lord I'm a simple man
Ain't too much I need
And I ain't askin' for all of your love
Gimme what you can
And set me free

Set me free

You lead this old horse to a bar
And you can buy me a drink
You lead me just about anywhere
Sometimes I'm just too tired to think

Never took anything from you
That I couldn't return twice
Never understand how I never
Listen to my own advice

Lord, I'm a simple man
Ain't too much I need
Well, I ain't askin for all of your love
Give me what ya can
And set me free

I ain't askin' for all of your love
I ain't askin' for all your love
I ain't askin' for all of your love
Give me what you can
And set me free
