JAMEY JOHNSON lyrics - That Lonesome Song

High Cost Of Living

Original and similar lyrics
I was just a normal guy Life was just a nine to five With bills and pressure Piled up to the sky She never asked She knew I'd be Hangin' with my wilder friends Looking for some other way to fly And three days straight was no big feat Could get by with no food or sleep And crazy was becoming my new norm I'd pass out on the bedroom floor And sleep right through the calm before the storm My life was just an old routine Every day the same damn thing I couldn't even tell I was alive I tell you The high cost of livin' Ain't nothing like the cost of livin' high That southern Baptist parking lot Is where I'd go to smoke my pot Sit there in my pickup truck and pray Staring at that giant cross Just reminded me that I was lost And it just never seemed to point the way As soon as Jesus turned his back I find my way across the track Lookin' just to score . . . another deal With my back against that damn eight ball I didn't have to think or talk . . . or feel My life was just an old routine Every day the same damn thing I couldn't even tell I was alive I tell you The high cost of livin' Ain't nothing like the cost of livin' high My whole life went through my head Layin' in that motel bed Watchin' as the cops kicked in the door I had a job and a piece of land My sweet wife was my best friend But I traded that for cocaine and a whore With my new found sobriety I've got the time to sit and think Of all the things I had . . . and threw away This prison is much colder than That one that I was locked up in just yesterday My life is just an old routine Every day the same damn thing Hell I can't even tell if I'm alive I tell you The high cost of livin' Ain't nothing like the cost of livin' high I tell you The high cost of livin' Ain't nothing like the cost of livin' high

[echoes] [Verse 1: AZ the Visualiza] Visualizin the realism of life and actuality Fuck who's the baddest a person's status depends on salary And my mentality is, money orientated I'm destined to live the dream for all my peeps who never bade it Cause yeah, we were beginners in the hood as five percenters But somethin must of got in us cause all of us turned to sinners Now some, restin in peace and some are sittin in San Quentin Others such as myself are tryin to carry on tradition Keepin the schwepervesence street ghetto essence inside us Cause it provides us with the proper insight to guide us Even though, we know somehow we all gotta go But as long as we leavin thievin we'll be leavin with some kind of dough So, and to that day we expire and turn to vapors Me and my capers-ll be somewhere stackin plenty papers Keepin it real, packin steel, gettin high Cause life's a bitch and then you die [Chorus: AZ the Visualiza] Life's a bitch and then you die; that's why we get high Cause you never know when you're gonna go Life's a bitch and then you die; that's why we puff lye Cause you never know when you're gonna go Life's a bitch and then you die; that's why we get high Cause you never know when you're gonna go Life's a bitch and then you die; that's why we puff lye [Echoes at the end] [Verse 2: Nas] I woke up early on my born day, I'm twenty, it's a blessing The essence of adolescence leaves my body now I'm fresh in My physical frame is celebrated cause I made it One quarter through life some God-ly like thing created Got rhymes 365 days annual plus some Load up the mic and bust one, cuss while I puffs from My skull cause it's pain in my brain vein money maintain Don't go against the grain simple and plain When I was young at this I used to do my thing hard Robbin foreigners take they wallets they jewels and rip they green cards Dipped to the projects flashin my quick cash And got my first piece of ass smokin blunts with hash Now it's all about cash in abundance, niggaz I used to run with Is rich or doin years in the hundreds I switched my motto - instead of sayin fuck tomorrow That buck that bought a bottle could've struck the lotto Once I stood on the block, loose cracks produce stacks I cooked up and cut small pieces to get my loot back Time is Illmatic keep static like wool fabric Pack a four-matic that crack your whole cabbage [Chorus: AZ the Visualiza] Life's a bitch and then you die; that's why we get high Cause you never know when you're gonna go Life's a bitch and then you die; that's why we puff lye Cause you never know when you're gonna go Life's a bitch and then you die; that's why we get high Cause you never know when you're gonna go Life's a bitch and then you die; that's why we puff lye Cause you never know when you're gonna go Life's a bitch and then you die [Echoes at the end] [Olu Dara plays trumpet until fade]

All Day Ride

JERRY REED "A Good Woman's Love"
The sun is goin' down late here There's a beautiful woman on my mind Maybe I found me a ready made alibi To live my life from a poetry in rhyme If the rain should cease to fall tomorrow Then the sun would surely shine in vain And maybe it's telling me that every little thing belongs And it's been that way since this old world began Oh Lord this boy is flyin' high On a handsome pair of wings like an eagle in the sky Maybe I'll find a home somewhere in the bye and bye But there's five hundred miles behind me more to roam Makin' it an all day ride back home There's a lesson I've learned from believing That the world around you can't stay the same So I live my life by the words of my chosen song And hope sooner or later that the world will be singin' along Oh Lord this boy is flyin' high...
