Well my mama told me : son you better wacth out
All those nasty woman gonna rip you dime for dime
But i got my pocket full of real tales, and a broken guitar mode
And the story keep on rollin', out from a sad man's tongue

Left my mama and papa's nest
I got the fever rambling my bones
Papa said : my boy, take my Johnny Cash vinyls and go
Well i got my pocket full of real tales, and a broken guitar mode
And the story keep on rollin', out from a sad man's tongue

Strollin' down the highway with uncle sam roaring : rebel kid get your ass home
Your ass belongs to me
Leave your Johnny Cash songs and get home
But i got my pocket full of real tales, and a broken guitar mode
And the story keep on rollin', out from a sad man's tongue

Singing in the cell 1.40.9.5
No way should i wear guns, i'm sitting my time

Left 1.40.9.5 with plenty rock'n'roll songs painting the road
Education sucks, so i sing my song for you

And i got my pocket full of real tales
And a broken guitar mode
And the story keep on rollin' out from a glad/sad man's tongue

    General CommentMy first impression of this song is how much it sounds like Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues. Sounds like a rebellious rocker who won't do what his mom, dad, or the country tells him.

    General CommentThe guy has lived life. Simple as that. He grew up, heard (but never really listened to) advice moving out, and then experienced all that life had to offer, which ended up putting him in the slammer. Now all he's left with is a pantload of stories to tell about what he's been through. He's disillusioned and bummed that that's all there is.
