"Let Me Wash At Your Sink" is the ninth track from Alone III: The Pinkerton Years 1994-1997.

Overview

Prior to the release of Alone III, nothing was known about "Let Me Wash At Your Sink", as it has no known association with the two major projects of the era, Songs From the Black Hole or Pinkerton. It is listed as having been written December 31, 1994, but is grouped among a group of late summer/early fall demos in the recording history.

Upon being released, fans noted that a lead guitar section in the song bears a strong resemblance to the chorus of "No Other One", although "No Other One" was written in July of 1994, according to the Catalog of Riffs. Rivers may have been trying something new with a previously written melody, or it may simply be a coincidence.

The lyrics are listed on page 10 of The Pinkerton Diaries

Lyrics

I been walking for four years
Haven't slept in five
I'm smelling funny
And I'm tired
I used to have a home
I used to have a bed
Got myself kicked out
Didn't pay the rent

Let me sleep in your bedroom
Let me wash at your sink
I've learned my lessons
Let me in, let me in

I know you like to live alone
I know you feel safe
But I'm not looking to harm you
Just one rest
And maybe it'll work out
I'll fix up around the house
And then even you'll prepare a meal

Let me sleep in your bedroom
Let me wash at your sink
I've learned my lessons
Let me in, let me in
