Kentucky Straight

Morning comes and strike me dumb
Yawn my way til ten
Keep on treading water til lunchtime
Back to yawning again
Goddam fluorescent migraine
Buzz behind my eyes
Fake a smile to hide behind
Never get em wise

But I'll be fine
Staying up too late
Walk that line
Kentucky Straight

Wanna see the bright lights tonight
Small price to pay
To hear all them bar lights calling
Guess I'll have to stay

But I'll be fine
Staying up too late
Walk that line
Kentucky Straight

My dreams are flying clear of eye and shining like a star
But evening's dying whiskey crying dancing on the bar

Aching morning sunrise
Still in last night's clothes
Maybe went a round too far
At least nobody knows
If I can make it through this bus ride
Without throwing up
I swear I'll never touch the stuff again
Think I'm growing up

But I'll be fine
Staying up too late
Walk that line
Kentucky Straight
