lyrics

You take the meat right off the bone
and eat alone for the last time as far as you know
you're a good man you only saved your hand from a fate worse than death
and in the same breath you apologize for leaving a trail
who cares if you're up or down you're playing that clown all around town
who cares if you're right or wrong you're taking too long to sing that old song
when Saturday comes don't mind will start a new line
you leave the streets you leave alone
you’ve just been gone for a long time we thought you should know
you’re a good man you only saved your hand from a fate worse than death
and in the same breath you apologize for leaving a trail
who cares if you’re up or down you’re playing that clown all around town
who cares if you’re right or wrong you’re taking too long to sing that old song
when Saturday comes don’t mind will start a
and if it’s all blessed I would it cost you less paid to be best
you’re walking around shantytowns with that old badge on your chest
the west will keep expanding or the long road ever demanding no questions to say:
you were a part of the history we made that day
