JAMEY JOHNSON lyrics - The Guitar Song

Can't Cash My Checks

Original and similar lyrics
I'm up every morning Before the sunshine comes rolling in When that rooster starts crowing It just reminds me that I need to feed him Every day is the same But every day is different 'Cause every day I grow Deeper in debt And you can't cash my checks And you can't feel this hunger You can push me into the water But you can't hold me under You can bring me down But you can't make me beg You can take my word But you can't cash my checks It's so hard to stay honest In a world that's headed to hell You can't make a good living these days 'Cause the truth just don't sell So if you go out my back door Just over the hill You'll see all these plants That's been paying my bills But you can't cash my checks And you can't feel this hunger You can push me into cold water But you can't hold me under You can bring me down But you can't make me beg You can take my word But you can't cash my checks You can bring me down But you can't make me beg You can take my word But you can't cash my checks You can take my word But you can't cash my checks

H Model

JIMMY EAT WORLD "Singles"
'Straight outta Phoenix boys.' Stay up late and listen in. Trading insult for your time. It breaks my heart in half to see her jumping up and down screaming: 'Cash in honey, cash in now.' Lift your hands up slow. If only you could see yourself. Everything you are imitate and water down. lf Just because you'll never have your politics with perfect means, doesn't mean you talk the round and round. Forsdale's syringe is wearing so thin. Lift your hands up slow. If only you could see yourself. Everything we are imitate and water down. They'll never know your world no matter how they try. It's your world. Never know, they'll never know your world (it's above us)

Bamboo Bones

AGAINST ME! "White Crosses"
Don't let them break you. Don't let them tell you who you are. Doesn't matter where you come from, you'll always have a floor to sleep on. And you have your bamboo bones, nervous energy, blind ambition, skin of your teeth. Push back, push back, push back, with every word and every breath. What god doesn't give to you, you've got to go and get for yourself. I'm embarrassed to admit it, I've got no grip. I'm leading with my jaw. Can you see it from a distance? Does it look ridiculous? I guess that's just what I have to live with. Still I have a mind to think, knees to break, you standing beside me. I'm going to push back, push back, push back, with every word and every breath. What god doesn't give to you, you've got to go and get for yourself.
