lately I've been thinkin about
an old trailer on the edge of town
a bunch of marlboro cigarette butts
thrown all over the ground

but lately I’ve been thinkin
how my job don’t pay enough
I’m gonna hook the house to the 79
and pick a lot near Bremo Bluff

I might find me a wife or two
I might even buy a rifle
I'm gonna sing sad songs at the local bar
if they’re rowdy I don’t mind the trouble

I might even have the freedom to sin
without the blue lights chasing me down
you can find me outside with a mean old bride
catfishing on the edge of town


God knows my friends don’t care
God knows my family won’t
I might stick around here for a couple of years
or I might just punch it and bolt

I don’t know whats next in this cruel charade
that’s gonna push me to the edge of my mind
I guess I’ll write a few songs nobody will hear
we all know they ain’t got the damn time

if I can tell you anything about the man I am
I can't promise a thing at all
so take a swing and a miss, well you’re cutting your wrists
you might as well pack a U-Haul

cos I’m sorry that I can’t pay rent today
even though that I promised I could
baby I’m not built for this type of life
I belong alone out in the woods
