By the time you were born there were four other siblings with your Mama awaiting your Daddy in jail Your oldest brother was away at a home and I Got You - Split Enz - The Best Of Split Enz - History Never Repeats (30th Anniversary Edition) didn't meet him til you were nineteen years old Old enough to know better, old enough to know better but you took to his jaw line and long sandy hair How he made you feel like none of the others and I Aint Happy - Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day way he looked at Picture Of You - Various - Down At The Club touched you deep down in there.
So you jumped on his bike and rode into the sunset but the sequel it started with the next Hell No sun and the dew on the bike seat and you all a glow from the love he put in you and a life on the run. Now, the District Attorney said He might of forgiven You had lots of reasons to turn out this way But you'll both go to jail for them four little babies you made and delivered along the way Last night you had a dream of a Lord so forgiving He might show compassion for a heathen He damned You awoke in a jail cell, alone and so lonely Seven years in Michigan Spring - Athens GA.
I've always been a religious man, I;ve always been a religious man but I met the banker and it felt like sin, he turned my bailout down The Banker Man, he let into me, let into me, let into me The Banker Man, he let into me and spread my name around He thinks I ain't got a lick of sense cause I talk slow and my money's spent ABBA - Voulez-Vous, I ain't the type to hold it against, but he better stay off my farm Cause it was my Daddy's and his Daddy's before and his Daddy's before and his Daddy's before Five generations and an unlocked door and a loaded burglar alarm.
Lots of pictures of my purdy family, lots of pictures of my purdy family lots of pictures of my purdy family in the house where I was born. House has stood through five tornadoes, Droughts, floods, and five tornadoes. I'd rather wrastle an alligator than to face the Banker's scorn Cause he won't even look me in the eye He just takes my land and apologize, with pen, paper, and a friendly smile, he says the deed is done.
The sound you hear is my Daddy spinning, The sound you hear is my Daddy spinning The sound you hear is my Daddy spinning over what the Banker done. Like to invite him for some pot roast beef and mashed potatoes and sweet tea follow it up with some banana pudding and a walk around the farm Show him the view from McGee Town Hill Let him stand in my shoes and see how it feels to lose the last thing on earth that's real I'd rather lose my legs and arms Bury his body in the old sink hole Bury his body in the old sink hole Bury his body in the old sink hole under cold November sky Then damned if I wouldn't go to church on Sunday Damned if I wouldn't go to church on Sunday Damned if I wouldn't go to church on Sunday and look the Preacher in the eye.
There's a lot of bad wood underneath the veneer She's an overnight sensation after twenty five years Sharp fast curves, power steering unroll that twenty, buy me some beer Ain't too bad, too bad at all, pick up the phone if I ever call Hell No, I Ain't Happy. There's a purdy little girl outside the van window Bout 80 cities down, to go Six crammed in, we ain't never alone Never homesick, ain't got no home Check my mail if you would please, Jenn Collect my things till I'm in town again Hell No, I Ain't Happy.
But I get a little closer everyday Gonna be a long time till I'm back your way. But I ain't too crappy, too crappy at all. Well, my daddy didn't pull out, but he never apologized Rock and Roll means well, but it can't help tellin' young boys lies.
A baby on the way's a good enough reason to get you out alive Get you out without having to swallow any pride. All my friends are restless, all they do is talk it down, two or eight lanes, it don't matter, it's just another town.
There's a fool on every corner, on every street, in every one and I'd rather be your fool nowhere than go somewhere and be no one's So Marry Me, Sweet Thing won't you Marry Me Your Mama thinks I beat anything she's ever seen.
This old town's alright with me, there's nowhere I'd rather be. Long as they stay mad at one another, they can't get mad at me Every time I leave here something bad happens to me Like a busted hand or finding some man laying where I sleep She don't mean nothing to me, that's just how it goes round here It's a cartoon town, I play my part, and I ain't spoke her name in years So Marry Me I don't want anything I done to be nobody's fault even if they got more money and mouth than they got balls.
That's just how it went down, right or wrong, it's just that way. Just cause I don't run my mouth don't mean I got I Aint Happy - Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day to say Marry Me Me and my Annette, we was as fond as we could be We was set to marry in October 33 I set my sights on courtin' her, as fine as she could be I never even noticed her best friend Marilee Electric Angel Overdrive - Bill Dawg Esq.
And The Extrordinaires - Beautiful To Gorgeous a job at the saw mill and I bought my girl a ring Had a pre-wedding party, close friends and family Everything was fine, eatin' homemade ice cream I swear I never noticed maid of honor, Marilee My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter. Marilee was taken ill, it was several miles from home Back then it wasn't fittin' for a girl to leave alone Sweet Annette, she asked me to walk her to the door As innocent as children back before the war My Sweet Annette was left standing at the alter.
Lord have mercy for what we done, Lord have mercy when to people get alone Neither one of us had done anything like that you see By the next sunset, I had eloped with Marilee, Sky (37) - Noel Collection / Winter Night Sweet Annette was left standing at I Aint Happy - Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day alter.
May - Dayton, OH. You want to grow up to paint houses like me, a trailer in my yard till you're 23 You want to be old after 42 years, keep dropping the hammer and grinding the gears Well, I used to go out in a Mustang, a Mach One in green. Me and your Mama made you in the back and I sold it to buy her a ring. And I learned not to say much of nothing and I figured you already know but in case you don't or maybe forgot, I'll lay it out real nice and slow Don't call what you're wearing an outfit.
Don't ever say your car is broke. Don't worry about losing your accent, a Southern Man tells better jokes. Have fun but stay clear of the needle. Call home on your sister's birthday. Don't tell them you're bigger than Jesus, don't give it away.
Six months in a St. Florian foundry, they call it Industrial Park. Then hospital maintenance and Tech School just to I Aint Happy - Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day Frigidaire parts.
But I got to missing your Mama and I got to missing you too. So I went back to painting for my old man and I guess that's what I'll always do So don't try to change who you are boy, and don't try to be who you ain't.
And don't let me catch you in Kendale with a bucket of wealthy-man's paint. Don't call what you're wearing an outfit. Don't sing with a fake British accent. Don't act like your family's a joke. Have fun, but stay clear of the needle, call home on your sister's birthday.
Don't tell them you're bigger than Jesus, Don't give it away. Don't give it away. Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown If we get the van out of the ditch before morning ain't nobody got to know what I done And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
And I don't need to be forgiven by them people in the neighborhood When we first hooked up, you looked me in the eye and said "Paw, we just ain't no good". We were Heathens in their eyes at the time, I guess I am just a Heathen still and I never have repented from the wrongs that Somwhere Down The River - Elf Power - Back To The Web say I have done I done what I feel.
It was a difficult delivery, now it's growing up mean and strong When you tell me that it's getting a little bit tight, ain't the first time I been outgrown And I'm gonna push a little harder She ain't revved till the rods are thrown I'll walk away And I don't need to be forsaken by you or anybody else and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.
These times can take their toll sometimes and I know you feel the same way too It gets so hard to keep between the ditches when the roads wind the way they do. When I saw her standing there, with her bright eyes and shining hair, she was looking back at me.
Some are meant to sing, some are meant to talk and some aren't meant to say a thing. But when she opened up her mouth and that Hell No voice came out I lost track of my own name.
Now she's found herself, and I lost mine and I'm just another guy who can't give her anything. Well the drifter, He holds on to his youth just like it was money in the bank. Evolution - Clawfinger - MP3 "Lord knows, I can't Colorful Administration - Marc Mac - Extend The Knowledge sounds better in the song than it does with hell to pay.
I might as well of slipped that ring on your finger from a window of a van as it drove away. Dreams are given to you when you're young enough to dream them before they can do you any harm. They don't start to hurt, until you try to hold on to them after seeing how they really are.
She used to dream them with me, every single crazy one, until they started hurting her too, now she's got some of her own and outgrowing me, might be the best I Aint Happy - Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day for her she's ever done. A light that shines as bright as hers can't be kept in the shadows for too long.
A heart that wants to live and a soul that wants to give can't just sit at home alone. Lord, she's give me everything and never wanted anything I couldn't give. Just what was inside of me. And now she's found herself, and I lost mine and I'm just another guy who can't give her anything.
Way you look at me like that, something's got to give pretty soon Throw it on a camel's back, something's got to give pretty soon Living hard to chase the dream, way beyond our ways and means Yours don't mean a goddamn thing. That's what you said, but, don't believe it. That shattered look upon your face, something's got to give pretty soon.
Swallow, but can't stand the taste, bark at the wind, Hell No the moon Living fast and drinking lots. List of things we haven't got. Tired of life with the have-nots That's what you said and I believe it. Maybe what you need's for someone to send you flowers Someone strong and mean who can prove he has the power to show you more than charm and take you on your way to where you want to be at the end of the day and it breaks my heart in two to know it ain't meant to be but, it ain't me.
It ain't me. And you say it's these things I do, about me that's attracted you so if I started doing something else, what would we have left. And you say Hell No just want compromise, then act so different all the time. These reasons why you said goodbye, just another way of telling lies. Something's got to give, got to give pretty soon or else we're gonna lose the very things that made it bloom Sitting in silence in a cold and lonely room while the world goes on around us Something's got to give, got to give pretty soon or else we're gonna hate each other and that would be the saddest thing I ever seen.
I know your Daddy hates me and I got a room in hell reserved. I know he wants to kill me and it's the least that I deserve But I always loved your Daddy, that's something that I know you know. Just sometimes don't do what I ought to, sometimes I yes when I should Einsam Wachend In Der Nacht - Wagner*, Berliner Philharmoniker, Daniel Barenboim, Meier*, Jerusalem*. I know your Daddy hates me and I drink I Aint Happy - Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day than a whale but my failures ain't for lack of trying it's just a little too late now to prevail.
You always knew I was a Hell No up, long before I screwed us up. You just said it endeared you to me, but in the end you just gave up And I always loved your Daddy, I loved your Mama even more And I always loved their daughter, that's for sure. I know your Daddy hates me, I know I'd probably I Aint Happy - Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day me too. But, I also know you don't hate me, even though you'd probably like to and ought to.
And it's a little too late for writing love songs, but I never did anything on time. Happiness on your big adventure. See you Darling down the line.
Careful that you don't use up your ninth one, we all were careless once. It can't be too much fun, just going round once, it all can slip away. One banana peel away. You left this big ole void, sure miss your sweet voice. Now we're left holding on. We all were careless once. I Aint Happy - Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day for I Aint Happy - Drive-By Truckers - Decoration Day . You can lie to your Mama, you can lie to your race but you can't lie to nobody with that cold steel in your face.
And the same God that you're so afraid is gonna send you to hell is the same one you're gonna answer to when the pin hits the shell.
