I am a drifter, a loser, an alcohol abuser
I drink and smoke all night and I sleep the day away
And I’m drivin’ down this highway just searching to find my way
Living on to fight another day

Verse 1:

I woke up early one morning it was raining it was pouring
I thought man I just can’t seem to catch a break
Cause my bills weren’t getting paid and my nerves were getting frayed
I wondered how much more could I take

Just then I saw a rainbow but I still felt my shame though
I couldn’t understand the reason why
Maybe it’s the drinkin’ that’s got me slowly sinkin’
Or maybe it’s the color of my lies


Verse 2:

In Oklahoma City weather was so pretty
But the Sun just wouldn’t shine the whole day through
They wouldn’t let me in said I couldn’t be their friend
until I learned to be good friends with you

So I made your acquaintance and tested out your patience
As I walked away time and time again
But the moment I was gone you knew it wouldn’t be too long
Cause I always seem to come back in the end


Verse 3:

It was 12 o’clock in Lincoln and I started thinkin’
Maybe I should head my ass back home
So I’m drivin’ through this heartland, the small towns and farmlands
And I think of you so I don’t feel so alone

I remember that old prayer that I heard from that soothsayer
You know, the one who really claimed to see
Said “I may lose my way but I will never go astray
I’m never lost as long as you’re here with me



Now I’ve tried to make things brighter with the bottle and a lighter
But I can’t take back the things that I done
Yeah but I can plainly see, if you can love a guy like me,
In this world, there’s hope for everyone
