Better Than I Deserve lyrics - The Local Honeys

Click to play this song!

[Verse 1]
When my granddaddy was a boy
He walked for miles and miles
From Buckhannon to Ole Jane Lew
To find a place to stay awhile

[Verse 2]
It wasn't a home he'd made his own
But one for wayward boys
Said, "The food was hard and the women cold
But it's better than I deserve"
[Chorus]
It's just another place to be alone
Another war that can't be won
If I could pull my boots back on
I'd still be left with just the one
But the only truth I've ever known
You can't take it with you when you're gone

[Verse 3]
An orphan left alone to die
He never bothered to lay down and cry
So he packed his grip, he traveled extra light
Said, "My only plans was for tonight"

[Verse 4]
He was small in his frame
But neither blind nor he lame
So he told a lie that put him in the sky
Uncle Sam gave him a plane

[Chorus]
It's just another place to be alone
Another war that can't be won
If I could pull my boots back on
I'd still be left with just the one
But the only truth I've ever known
You can't take it with you when you're gone
[Verse 5]
In nineteen forty-five they shot his gunner
Down in broad daylight
Crying, "Glory be! What a day to die!
But you'll never have me alive"

[Verse 6]
And after four days he was saved at sea
Floated right on by the enemy
Took him home to die with some dignity
And that better than I deserve

[Chorus]
It's just another place to be alone
Another war that can't be won
If I could pull my boots back on
I'd still be left with just the one
But the only truth I've ever known
You can't take it with you when you're gone

[Outro]
Yeah, the only truth I've ever known
You can't take it with you when you're gone
