Before The Dogwood Blooms - American Aquarium Lyrics

American Aquarium CHORDS

Before The Dogwood Blooms

Kiss me quick honey, I can't stay long
By this time tomorrow, I'll be good as gone
You know I'd stay longer, baby if I could
But I got to get the getting while the getting's good

So I'll see you around this town in a week or two
Running low on money, honey, and the bills are coming due
Just need a couple days until I find a way like I always do
But this I swear I'll be back here before the dogwood blooms
See I'm a long haul daddy, get a rig for hire
I get that diesel singing like a gospel choir
Yeah I get it there safe boy I get it there fast
Cash up-front, no questions asked

I gotta buddy's got a friend said he needs some help
And we both know the rent don't pay itself
Deep down I know that I'm above this
Old enough to know better, too young to quit

So I'll see you around this town in a week or two
Running low on money, honey and the bills are coming due
Just need a couple days until I find a way like I always do
But this I swear I'll be back here before the dogwood blooms

Twenty-eight miles from the state line
Blue lights coming in hot behind
They got me once, babe, and I ain't going back
So when that siren sounds
Throw that hammer down
And watch it all fade to black

Kiss me quick honey, can't stay long
By this time tomorrow, I'll be good as gone
