lyrics

WELL, I COULD SAY THAT IT’S THE SNOW
OR HOW IT’S DARK EACH DAY WHEN I DRIVE HOME
OR ‘CAUSE SOME SONG CAME ON THE RADIO
THAT’S GOT ME THINKIN’ THIS WAY
BUT IT’S THIS HABIT AND THIS CURSE
AND AS EACH DAY GOES, IT JUST GETS WORSE
SEE, MY TRANSMISSION, IT AIN’T GOT NO REVERSE
AND I’VE GOT NOTHING TO BLAME

AND THE MORE I THINK ABOUT IT, I HAD IT ALRIGHT
PLAYIN’ EUCHRE IN THE GARAGE ON A SATURDAY NIGHT
WITH MY OLD BUDDIES WHO, LATELY, I DON’T SEE
AND I’VE GOT LOUSY EXCUSES FOR HOW THEY SLIPPED AWAY FROM ME

I’VE BEEN BEATIN’ ‘ROUND THE BUSH
WHEN I SHOULD BE BARKING UP THE WRONG TREES
MAYBE I JUST NEED A LITTLE PUSH
TO GET ME ROLLING AGAIN
SO GO AHEAD AND SAY YOUR PIECE
BUT I DON’T THINK WORDS ARE GONNA FIND MY RELEASE
NO, YOU MIGHT NEED TO USE SOME ELBOW GREASE
TO GET ME ROLLING AGAIN

‘CAUSE MAYBE I’VE GROWN SOFTER IN THESE YEARS
WELL, I’VE STUMBLED ON WISDOM AND LANDED ON FEARS
AND I’VE LOST TOUCH WITH MY YOUTHFUL WAYS
AND LIKE AN OLD DOG, MAN, I DON’T BARK SO LOUD THESE DAYS
