    Lyrics

    I bought the paper yesterday
    And I saw the obituary
    And I read of how you died in pain
    Well, I just couldn't understand it

    If I could of changed that
    Then Lord knows I'd do it now
    But there is no going back
    And what's done is done forever

    But you were always chained
    And shackled by the dirt
    Of every small town institution
    And every big town flirt

    And I think of what you might have been
    A man of such great promise
    Oh but, you seem to forget the dream
    And the more you saw you hated

    But let's not talk of blame
    For what is only natural
    Like a moth going to a flame
    You had a dangerous passion

    But you were always chained
    And shackled by the dirt
    Of every small town institution
    And every big town flirt

    All the things that you might have been
    But who am I to say? Still I wonder
    If it's the cold earth you prefer to lay
    If it's the cold earth, you prefer to stay
