The Jayhawks

The Jayhawks are an American alternative country and rock band that emerged from the Twin Cities music scene during the mid 1980s. Their country rock sound was influential on many bands who played the Twin Cities circuit during the 1980s and 1990s like Uncle Tupelo, The Gear Daddies and The Honeydogs. They have released several studio albums, including five on the American Recordings label. On hiatus from 2005 to 2009, the band has since reunited and released a new album, "Mockingbird Time," in September 2011. more »

I rode the rock 'n' rockets, running into Deadwood Town 
Didn't have much money to lay my head down 
Her momma came walking down the street 
Carrying the words on a string 

So I sat myself right down, ordered some sweet cherry pie 
I had a mighty fine time in Deadwood 
Tasting sweet cherry pie 

Used to pull the young, must be the Waterloo 
All I have to say is, "Honey, I won't sly to you" 
I got a job hit the gold mine from nine to five 


There's two bits in the gas tank, I'm smoking big cigars 
Didn't have too much money so I started stealing cars 
Sheriff came walking down the street 
Looks like a hard time in the can
