tyler childers – peace of mind lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
he drinks orange juice and vodka
in the bas-m-nt while she’s talking
to someone long distance for hours and hours on end
and as he’s slowly sippin’
he thinks about his children
and the heart attacks that youngest daughter’s always giving him

he ain’t smoked no marijuana
since he got on with the railroad
and he’s been on with the railroad for a long and lonesome while
but the day that he retires
he will smoke himself to china
he will leave behind his worries as he’s racing through the sky

[verse 2]
she sells avon to her buddies
and saves a little money
on the makeup she’s been using to hide away the years
and she sits and watches tv
usually every evening
if there ain’t some kind of ballgame her daughter has to cheer

she sneaks menthols in the morning
while her family’s still snoring
and as she burns the eggo’s she looks back at her life
that heart she broke in high school
he’s singing on the opry
she wonders what the h-ll that she was thinking at the time

[chorus]
oh the days are dark down in the holler
waiting for the sun to shine
on the back you’ve been breaking
trying to earn peace of mind

[verse 3]
their youngest daughter stella
she’s been running with this fella
that he cannot stand the thought of
that he surely does despise
he’s told her he best never
see the two of them together
but it’s hard to keep an eye on her
when you’re working all the time

there are things he needs to tend to
and the bills the bank keeps sendin’
lord, the zeros on the end
keep pushing further to the right
like a freight train hauling sorrow
and moving ever onward
through the tunnel of forever
towards the never ending light

[chorus]
oh the days are dark down in the holler
waiting for the sun to shine
on the back you’ve been breaking
trying to earn peace of mind
trying to earn peace of mind
