lyrics

I've lived a hard damn life since I was seven
I let the devil burn deep inside of me
I've played the games of whiskey drinkin' women
The games of love and cheatin' means

Ain't had no job that's lasted for a week or more
Ain't got no time for workin' 9 to 5
I stay up late and play the honky-tonkin'
Play my guitar and play all night

I'm travelin' on, to clear blue heaven
My life on earth is misery
I'm travelin' on to claim my maker
For in his arms I will be free

I have walked up and down the streets of love
I've broken hearts in every town I see
I pass on by when I see the preacher man
Who says 'Your blind, but I can make you see'

Now here I lay all broken and deserted
My only friend, the bottle next to me
And one last time dance with the demon satan
So Lord, Oh Lord, come bury me

I'm travelin' on, to clear blue heaven
My life on earth is misery
I'm travelin' on to claim my maker
For in his arms I will be free
