Three shades of black is where I come from.
Depression, Misery, and Hellacious fun.
No we’re not the kind to turn our backs and run
coz three shades of black is where we come from.
We are a certain breed and we don’t like you.
Some are junkies some are freaks and others are everyday ghouls.
No one will ever know what we’ve been through
and we are proud in the light of the moon. -Hank III

On a Greyhound bus Lord I’m travelin’ this morning
I’m goin’ to Shreveport and down to New Orleans
Been travlin’ these highways and doin’ things my way
It’s been making me lonesome on’ry and mean. – Waylon

God her hair was jet black and her name was Bodine
Thought she was the queen of the Basin Street Queens
She got tired of that smoky-wine dream
She began to feel lonesome on’ry and mean. – Waylon

Three shades of black
Three shades of black
We all like metal and Whiskey!
Livin’ Hard and chasin’ down Hell.
We’ll never give up on what we have because the darkness gives us our thrills. -Hank III

We got together and we cashed in our sweeps
Gave onto beggar who was mumblin’ through the streets
There’s no escaping from his snowy white dream
On’ry and lonesome on’ry and mean. – Waylon

3 shades of black
3 shades of black
We all like metal and Whiskey!
Livin’ Hard and chasin’ down Hell.
We’ll never give up on what we have because the darkness gives us our thrills. -Hank III

Yeaaaaaaaahhhh! Yeeeeeaaaaahyeaaaaaaaah! -Hank III

I’m down in this valley where the wheels turn so low
At dawn I pray to the Lord of my soul
I say do Lord do right by me you know
I’m tired of being lonesome on’ry and mean… -Waylon

Three shades of black is where I come from.
I was born in the sacrifice when I was young.
Three shades of black is what makes us strong,
and we all wear it like a uniform of chosen ones. -Hank III

[Chorus]
Three shades of black.
Three shades of black.
Three shades of black.
We all like metal and Whiskey!
Livin’ hard and chasin’ down Hell.
We’ll never give up on what we have because the darkness gives us our thrills. -Hank III

Coz’ the darkness gives us our thrills….. -Hank III
