nothings keeping this guy down
hes packing up
hes leaving town
to party with a certainty
that nothing is for sure
hope a long white large will bring him
promise of a better season
follow heart and not so much the mind

pah pah pah pah
pah pah pah pah

no ones treating this guy right
hes packing up
hes gone tonight
he'll show the world
that he gets the last word
i hate to break the news dear friend
the world is bitter at each end
and nothing makes you more become it
quite like running from it

pah pah pah pah
pah pah pah pah
pah pah pah pah
pah pah pah pah

    General CommentCouple corrections:

    In the first verse, I'm hearing "departing with a certainty", not "to party with a certainty". (he's leaving)

    Also, it's "hoping long white lines will bring him promise of a better season". ie. the long white lines painted on a road (he's leaving).

    Great song. I've felt that way before.
