    Lyrics

    Sometimes I don't know where this dirty road is taking me
    sometimes i don't know the reason why
    so i guess i'll keep gamblin'
    lots of booze and lots of ramblin'
    it's easier than just waitin' around to die
    well 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' around to die

    i came of age and found a girl
    in a tuscaloosa bar
    she cleaned me out and she hit it on the sly
    well i tried to kill the pain
    i bought some wine i hopped a train
    seemed easier than just waitin' around
    to die

    then a friend said he knew where
    some easy money was
    we robbed a man and brother did we fly
    but the posse caught up with me
    drug me back to muskogee
    now it's two long years, waitin' around
    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 is codeine
    and he's the nicest thing i've seen
    and together we're gonna wait around to die
