Well I hide behind my guitar like a sparrow in the
Hopin I might fly away anew
Cause theyll love you when youre wrong
And then leave you when youre right
Tell me baby, whats a boy to do?
Well I came to town a stranger, not knowin how to act
Figured Id hang out and just get found.
Made me some new friends
They climbed way up on my back
Been gone so long they aint comin down
You can kiss the sky good morning
You can say your prayers at night
Hide your soul way down in your shoes,
But its the same old scene
Borrowed love and faded dreams
And you just cant hide from those Arkansas Blues.
Well time is playin tricks on me
Makes me thing Im movin fast
I dont think Im movin at all
And every strangers face I see reminds me of the past
Come on big and leave you feelin small
So I took to drinkin liquor on the other side of town
Way up in those woods beside the moon
Where every graceful dream I had got lost without a
Tell you what, I cant leave this place too soon.
And it dont take no rhyme or reason
It dont make no sense at all
Just one of those things that you dont choose
Its the same old thing
Broken hearts and busted strings
And you just cant run from those Arkansas Blues.
Everybodys asking questions about whose side are you on
I dont see how it matters much to me
And all these midnight celebrations
That are ended by the dawn
Leave you feelin low as you can be
So Im leaving town this morning, gonna lighten up my
See if I cant lose what I have found
And its one drink for the memories
And one kiss for the road
Look out, I believe Im Texas bound
California, Oklahoma, Arizona, Tennessee
I been all around this land to pay my dues
High, low, and right behind me
Wherever I go they find me
And I just cant run from the Arkansas Blues.
