Song Lyrics

Life was a ball of alcohol
And pills and blues and gals
And every hung over mornin'
Was an unheeded warnin'
That I shared with my lost pals

And the music flowed
And my chosen road grew wider everyday
Till the highs got low and the will said no
I can't go on that way

Can't go that way, can't go that way
Yes, the highs got low and the will said no
I can't go on that way

Sugar is sweet and good prime meat
Is so hard to come by
Saccharine is 'round again
But today it's do or die

My baby's is home where I belong

And this is still my day
I am hangin' on and I am comin' on strong
And I can't go on that way

Can't go that way, can't go that way
I'm still hangin' on and comin' on strong
And I can't go on that way

Up is down and next time around
I aint goin' round again
When it comes my time, I'm gonna stop at the line
And forget where I've been

Who was it said that alive is dead
And night to some is day
Just let her go and let a new wind blow
'Cause I can go on that way
