Ballad of The LONE MUSICIAN
(COPYRIGHTED 2018)

CHORUS:
And I'm a lone cowboy out on the road
JUST A lone Musician riding alone
RIDING ALONE, I JUST WANNA GO HOME
TOURING OR RIDING, YOU'RE ALL ALONE
Like a Lone Cowboy Riding ALONE
Like a Lone Cowboy Riding ALONE

Verse 1:

Met some bar stool prophets when I needed a few cold beer
Said they were proud; proud of all my small feats.
As they continued on I wrote a note on an old grocery receipt
That said don't listen to them; just listen to me
I did hit the top of the charts but nothing is for free
It cost friends and family but especially my baby
It's no wonder I feel like....................To: CHORUS

Verse 2:
So worn down that even when I have a break all I do is ache
Bellyaches and Toothaches; not sure how much I can take
Five years of touring and one hundred year heartbreak
I'm sinking fast still running from my past;
No wonder I feel like ....to CHORUS

Verse 3:
I am drenched in my sweat; too many days I want to forget
I talk to the universe but I don't have their answer yet
I make all the decisions; the dreams lived out are my payback
I just want a friend or two to come on back.......To: CHORUS

Verse 4:
I got friends in high places; I know folks in low places
I even got opinions on my opinions
I think Lucifer is calling on my cell; the walls I build just to keep me out of this hell
And It's no wonder.............. To: CHORUS

Verse 5:
And those Bar Stool Prophets said that sorrow is always looking back
And worrying is always about looking around
As for faith you got Look up; I guess I'm due for a spiritual checkup
I sure feel like.........To: Chorus
