Gram Parsons

Well, it's said my life has been so free and easy

But I'll tell you now the story isn't so

'Cause I've spent a lot of time down on the corner

Tasting tears and spilling whiskey on the floor

Such a shame that it's so hard for me to tell the truth to you

but by now you know the kind of man I am

So don't turn your pretty face away from me, dear

'Cause there's kids in this game don't understand


One more night like this would put me six feet under

But my heart would still be fighting for your love

Just remember little darlin' that I love you

And kiss the cildren for me please, before you go

So don't play this crazy game with me no longer

'Cause I won't be able to resist my rage

And the gun that's hanging on the kitchen wall, dear

Is like a roadsign pinting straight to Satan's cage

And the gun that's hanging on the kitchen wall, dear

Is like a roadsign pointing straight to Satan's cage
