about

Tipping my cap to JC

lyrics

Time won't wait around till you're allowed to go and make up your own mind
Take the rocky road, there ain't no easy way to say: you won't make it out alive
I pray my children have got their mothers' eyes because I'd hate for them to see through mine
Hang pictures on your wall in your house of all the memories you're desperate to survive

I heard the story of a man who took the notion to jump in the river and drown but instead he took his gun and he shot that no good woman down.

On the run, go act dumb if you think that it's the way
Pray for sun until winter comes then hide yourself away
I sit and wonder almost every night about almost everything
But I get no closer to figuring out why the sun sets at the end of the day
