I COULDN'T LAY THIS GUITAR DOWN
Two-lane highway, midnight southbound,
only restless souls and old stray dogs even know when I come through town.
Angel, she lies fast asleep, she doesn't know I'm gone,
I pray The Lord her soul to keep but a gypsy heart's gotta travel on.
I couldn't lay this guitar down,
I couldn't stand on solid ground too long,
and I couldn't ever be what the girl expected of me,
the runnin' kind never settle down.
People used to tell me, "when all is said and done,
boy, you're just gonna live too hard too fast and die too young,"
but there's somethin' deep inside here no one can ever hold,
and just as long as I can find a good song way down deep inside my soul...
Leavin' is my stock-in-trade,
it's all part of the plans I've made to outrun the rain,
and anything any heart can feel
can be wrought out of wood and steel, and that'll never change,
no, I'll never change.
