Trouble Ahead Blues (compilation)
Trouble Ahead Blues (compilation).
I drank some whisky spat it straight out
I’m a teetotalling man full of self doubt
Some things get me angry
Make me want to shout
But I stay silent cause I don’t know
What life is all about
Sometimes its hard to think
Almost makes me want
To turn to drink.
The mirror never lies
Though it looks like I’m double sized
I seem a lot older today
I should stick to looking to the past
Because good things don’t last
My shoulders are creaking
My bones they like to crack
A lifetime of lifting and shifting
Is carved upon my back
I’m a lot slower than I used to be
My face looks like the rusty bark
Of an old Oak tree.
I have been in love but sometimes that love
Has been returned unopened
Cupid was a mess seems he got the wrong address
I guess that’s your luck when love comes unstuck
I still see the faces of the woman I have known
I wonder if they also ended up alone
They probably tied the knot had kids and forgot
Who I was because love moves on
And leaves the dust behind.
I have wandered most of my days
Once worked at digging graves
Never saw a stone that said
I guess he was too late
I once wondered what it would be like
To be in Jesus’s shoes
That’s when I understood irony
Because the man walked in barefeet.
