Life it seems to keep on driftin'
In steady steps of nine to five
And you were out looking for redemtion
G/Em G A
And through the smoke filled mist between us
And with that neon moon above
A lonely heart and cheap liquor
G/Em G A
Sometimes is the closest thing you have to love
And be my honkey tonk angel
And I'll be your rollin' stone
Be my fast lane to nowhere
I'll be the road that leads you home
And we'll both hold each other thinkin'
Heads spinnin' from the drinkin'
That this ain't no way to live this life
And the hardest part of livin', yeah the hardest part of livin'
G A D
Is makin' it through the night
So take his picture of your dresser
And take your halo off the wall
And leave your makeup but take off everything
That makes you ever give a damn at all
And in the mornin' you'll regret me
But my face will fade with time
And our lonely roads will keep on windin'
And we're just meeting at the crossroads to say goodbye
