[C#m]Sometimes I don't know where this dirty [F#m]road is taking me

Some[C#m]times I don't even know the reason [G#m]why
I [C#m]guess I'll keep a'gambling
Lots of [F#m]booze and lots of rambling
It's [C#m]easier than just a-[G#m]waitin' around to [C#m]die
One-time friends I had a ma, I even had a pa
He beat her with a belt once cause she cried
She told him to take care of me
She headed down to Tennessee
It's easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die

I came of age and found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
She cleaned me out and hit it on the sly
I tried to kill the pain
I bought some wine and hopped a train
Seemed easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die

A friend said he knew where some easy money was
We robbed a man and brother did we fly
The posse caught up with me
Drug me back to Muskogee
It's two long years, just a-waitin' 'round to die

Now I'm out of prison, I got me a friend at last
He don't steal or cheat or drink or lie
His name's codeine
He's the nicest thing I've seen
Together we're gonna wait around and die
