Jason Isbell - Live Oak Lyrics


There's a man who walks beside me
It is who i used to be
And i wonder if she sees him
And confuses him with me
And i wonder who she's pinin' for
On nights i'm not around
Could it be the man who did the things
I'm living now?
I was rougher than a timber
Shippin' out of fond du lac
When i headed south at 17
Ol' sheriff on my back
I never held a lover in my arms or in my gaze
So i found another victim every couple days
But the night i fell in love with her
I made my weakness known
Through the fires and the farmers diggin' dusty fields alone
The jealous innuendos of the lonely hearted men
Let me know what kind of country i was sleeping in
Well you couldn't stay a loner
On the plains before the war
My neighbors had been slightin' me
I had to ask what for
Rumors of my wickedness had reached our little town
Soon she'd heard about the boys i used to hang around
We'd robbed a great lakes freighter,
Killed a couple men or more
And i told her her eyes flickered like the sharp steel of a sword
All the things that she'd suspected
I'd expected her to fear
Was the truth that drew her to me when i landed here
There's a man who walks beside me
He is who i used to be
And i wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me
And i wonder who she's pinin' for
On nights i'm not around
Could it be the man who did the things
I'm living down?
Well i carved a cross from live oak
And a box from shortleaf pine
Buried her so deep
She touched the water table line
I picked up what i needed
And i headed south again
To myself i wondered
Would i find another friend
There's a man who walks beside her,
It is who i used to be
And i wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me.
