FRANKLIN COUNTY NIGHTS

I should prob’ly get to drinkin’

Or make my way back home

Just head out east ‘cross Ohio

Sinkin’ like a stone

But I left those hills behind me

When I wandered in to town

Those city lights burned brighter then

So much colder now

 

You gotta know the shape I’m in

You hang on the arm of a lesser man

Too late to say I’m sorry now

Truth be told I never am

I never am

 

And we just weren’t much for sleepin’

On those Franklin County nights

That apartment lit like kindlin’

Under the fire in your eye

We were drownin’ in Black Label

To forget our old sweet past

And we put on “Bonfire In A Dixie Cup”

And laid out in the grass

 

You gotta know the shape I’m in

You hang on the arm of a lesser man

Too late to say I’m sorry now

Truth be told I never am

I never am
