The lyric challenge.

Do you know your music ? Put the title and artist name in the comment box.

[1]
I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck
with a pink carnation and a pickup truck.

[2]
These people round here wear beaten down eyes
sunk in smoke dried faces
they're so resigned to what their fate is.

[3]
We can go wherever we please
and everything depends upon
how near you stand to me.

[4]
Over men and horses hoops and garters
lastly through a hogshead of real fire !

[5]
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
and I kissed her goodbye, said, "All beauty must die".

[6]
But years of gin have broken him
and left him cold where he fitted in
It's too late to turn around and find another way.

[7]
Where the clouds are like headlines
on a new front page sky
my tears are salt water
and the moon's full and high.

[8]
He couldn't take the public scorn
changed from human to plant form
now he’s swapped his legs for roots
his arms and soil are in cahoots.

[9]
One day the track that you're climbing gets steep
your emotions are frayed
and your nerves are starting to creep.
