lyrics

I was lost and but you were found I think that’s why you left me
Although it could be my neglect of every one of your needs

But selfishness did me pretty well right up to today
I never had to do much to get a big steak on my plate

I was never one for loyalty, danger and them bible fruits
But now that you left me Im gonna clean up good and true
I Oiled my hair I brushed my teeth I even shaved my beard
I'm gonna wonder into to town to look for work out there

I want my life to finish in a Crescendo not wither into dust
I want to show you what I’m made of cause I think you don’t think it's much

Time will tell if I prove to you that I’m not a lecher and a waste
So far I have shaved off my beard and that is a pretty solid case

On my way in to town I ran into a few of road -blocks
I had to go to a bar to see a man about a dog
I ended up with a few too much, I’m Jail cell tonight
So darling if you have some spare cash you could help me out of this bind

But my time in here’s got me thinking I could be a musician
It looks like a pretty easy job and the drinks just keep coming
I can sing quite high I can sing quite low but not as low as Johnny Cash
But that’s ok cause an average Joe don’t t know a good song from a bad

Some people like to work damn hard some people like to lay in late
We both know which one i've been but I can assure you that’s gonna change
I just picked up an old guitar and ill play it every day
Ill get some whisky to help me with the lyrics and I’ll be on my way
