JOHNNY CASH


Crazy Old Soldier-(w Ray Charles) Lyrics

I've had fame and fortune
Women come knock on my door
I've lived to the limit
Maybe a little bit more

There are so many stories
About how I got out of control
Some say it's a woman
Some say it's my troubled soul

I'm like a crazy old soldier
Fighting a war on my own
Just me and the whiskey
And the bottles are ten thousand strong

You'd think I'd give up
As many times as I've been hit
But like a crazy old soldier
I just don't know when to quit

Bar rooms and bedrooms
Are just faces and places and names
Once for the pleasure
And Lord knows once for the pain

I've tried to forget her
And all of the things that we've done
But as long as there are memories
I'll never hang up my gun

I'm like a crazy old soldier
Fighting a war on my own
Just me and the whiskey
And the bottles are ten thousand strong

You'd think, I'd give up
As many times as I've been hit
But like a crazy old soldier
I just don't know when to quit

Like a crazy old soldier
I just don't know when to quit

for me it describes the battle with booze. Johnny Cash sings it with such feeling cause he fought his devils for a long time and finally made it.
