lyrics

On the long nights of my country days
Got a heartfelt song, and it's hard to sing
And my songbird, stuck in her cage
Shh...
Don't sing so loud now...
'Bout what the crows don't wanna hear about
I know you can't stay, but...
Please don't fly away

When the Snake got you in the Garden Eve
Eden seemed like some kind a' dream
And the Fruits of the Apple Tree it seems
Those same Fruits they stole our Rainbow

But you never cared for Rainbows and such
And me my head it's in the Clouds too much
But still I feel like something was lost
Between the Sky and the Ground below us

I lost you...
I lost you...

And the folks here, yeah they treat me well
With the luxuries of a fine hotel
But still I find it kinda hard to tell
When the roads go, I know
All too well

And I never cared for luxuries much
And the best bail bonds can't stop a jail bust
When the next bus got bars full a' rust
And the next flight it took off without us

I'd save you if I could save me
I think we're drowning
In a teaspoon of water
