I ain't no scholar, I don't write no books
I done spend my money on a nice girl honey, and she hates my guts
I paid my rent late so my landlord's angry
And all this shit keeps piling up and trying to hang me

Give my lovin' on the run
So don't you try to slow me down and walk around me
Sick of trying to strum along with your love song
So leave me here to pour another drink on the rocks

All of this will hold you down onto the ground until you're crawling on the gravel like a regular guy
All of this will hold you down onto the ground until you're drowning in your sorrows with a bottle of rye

I ain't got no savior, I ain't got no time
I know I'm stuck with a problem that'll come through and swallow up my last dime
All I wanted was some peace and quiet to take me out of here before I start a riot
I lost my reason, I've done lost my way
I done sat here for hours and heard all the songs that the jukebox played
So keep your sunny days away from here and I'll pour the liquor down and smile while I say

Life's been on the rocks I've taken my last shot at holding onto
Life's been on the rocks I've taken my last shot at holding holding on at all, at

All of this will hold you down onto the ground until you're crawling on the ground like a regular guy
All of this will hold you down onto the ground until you're drowning in your sorrows with a bottle of rye
