lyrics

You can only wait
Wait so long
Pacing father
Hungry young

West I travel
A kiss for my wife
I spent my last dime
On a room for the night

People will talk and talk and talk but...

Prayers go up and fall back down
I sowed my life into that ground
So I raise my hands never more
Angel, you can’t catch me
I left my bible in the hotel drawer

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
How sweet the taste
Of whiskey now

We were fools, oh we were fools
Forsaken plains
Now my only hope
Lies in these two hands

High hopes
We had high hopes
As the sky was falling down
