Print Version


He played guitar in a honky-tonk band
He drank Jack Daniels, black label brand
He was the life of the party
Till they closed down the bar
In the eyes of a young boy, he was a star

(Chorus:)
He'd say, "son, don't you run down the roads that i've run
And don't go and sing all the songs that i've sun
'Cause this kind of livin' takes its toll on a man
And through the smoke and the neon i saw it first hand
I got the lowdown on the highlife
Bust still here i am."

The blues and the bottle held him under their spell
Took him to heaven and put us through hell
Well, sometimes I feel him up on this stage
His restless spirit
Still runs through my veins

(Chorus)

I got the lowdown on the highlife
But still here I am
Mmm...

  • 1 Long Way Down

    You slide a little closer and whisper in my ear..."
  • 10 The Ball
    "If I hadn't dropped the ball, I would've took it all the way
    Homecoming '89 with ten seconds left to play
    We were drivin' toward the goal line, they were screamin' in the stands
    I had the chance to be a hero, but it slipped right through my hands..."

    "I pick up the phone that's ringin' inside my head
    It's your old familiar voice drippin' like honey
    Sayin', "C'mon, c'mon, let's tie one on
    Your know I can be there in a heartbeat, baby, if you're lonely."..."
  • 5 Sunday Morning And Saturday Night

    A real hard man to figure
    He'd read the King James Bible
