Chris Knight - Enough Rope Lyrics


Well I work for the city in the town where I grew up.
Some days I run a backhoe some days I run a dump.
If I had other plans on my graduation day,
Then several years ago I guess I hauled Ďem all away.
Yeah I hauled Ďem all away.

She told me she was pregnant on the day I turned 18.
I did what your supposed to do. I bought her a ring.
He didnít have to ask us, but he asked us anyway.
We stood up and said, ďI do.Ē what else were we gonna say?
What else were we gonna say?

CHORUS
Well Iím thankful for the things I have,
And all the things I donít.
And Iíve got dreams that will come true,
And Iíve got some that wonít.
Most the time I just walk the line- wherever it goes.
ĎCuz you canít hang yourself if you ainít got enough rope.

My boss man is the mayor, I do just what he asks
I mow the courthouse lawn watch the prisoners walkiní past
Iím happy to be working, instead of weariní chains.
Like my cousin Willy, heís locked up in La Grange.
Heís locked up in La Grange.

CHORUS
But Iím thankful for the things I have,
And all the things I donít.
And Iíve got dreams that will come true,
I got some that wonít.
Most the time I just walk the line, wherever it goes
ĎCuz you canít hang yourself if you ainít got enough rope.

SOLO Ė 8M

Thereís a tavern down the highway, I go to drink some beers
And wash down all Iím missiní by hanginí around here
Then I drive back to the trailer; Iíll make up with my wife
I kiss my sleeping children, and I get on with my life
Yeah I get on with my life
