lyrics

Born in a dusty outside of Tennessee
She said that she ain’t got no time for me
And she swore on her daddy’s grave that one day she’d be free
As she broke her bad in the beating sun she thought of who she’d be
I’m not saying don’t have dreams, just don’t let em get you down
This daddy’s girl’s dreams drove her straight into the ground

We’re wasting time, but are we really wasting time
You think I’m crazy, but to me I’m doing fine

I spent more than a few days toiling in the sun
I’ve done everything that I could think to be someone
In my days I’ve been through a town or two
Let me tell ya that most towns there ain’t that much to do
A life of hard labour isn’t my idea of fun
Till one day when going through his things I found my daddy’s gun

We’re wasting time, but are we really wasting time
You think I’m crazy, but to me I’m doing fine

Well we loaded up a burlap sack and we were on our way
The conductor learned with a mouth full of metal that we weren’t there to play
We rode upon them dusty tracks until they bottomed out
Robbed a Bank, stole the sheriff’s horse and then we headed south
Moral of the story if you ever own a gun,
Lock it up real tight and hide the bullets from your son

We’re wasting time, but are we really wasting time
You think I’m crazy, but to me I’m doing fine
