the madisons – sweetwater lyrics


well that sweetw-ter runs through my veins
and i’m trying as hard as i can
to forget what i saw and pretend i don’t care
and drink beer from a brown paper bag

and that soft touch don’t cure it no more
the shiverin scars of my spine
and i couldn’t get work no matter how hard you lied
to them folks at the old gypsum mine

and there’s a cross on the side of the road
where her radio played its last song
and we managed to salvage the clothes in the trunk
but the cash in the glove box was gone

and i swore i’d never return
and go back to cutting wood for my dad
i’s takin’ pills in his house
he gave me money for gas
he said leave son while you still can
