Kid Rock 11. Midnight Train To Memphis Lyrics

I was hiding' from the sun once again
I was runnin' from time my friend
I lost another war
So I poured one more
And I went home drunk again
She was up when the key hit the lock
And the clock looked at me
Just like the devil in disguise
I saw it in her eyes
She'd be gone before the evening

So I poured another strong one
And chopped a line from here to Texas
'Cause I've lost another good one
She's on the midnight train to Memphis

With a brand new start I swore
I'd love from the heart
I meant to change my ways
But I've seen better days
Than the one that's here this morning
With a wife and kids at home
With a job somewhere on some a__embly line
I wish I had that life
I bet you wish you had mine

So let's pour another tall one
And chop a line from here to Texas
'Cause I've lost another good one
She's on the midnight train to Memphis

dude what station am i listening to k-snooze?
kid rock... i thought he was american bad a__.
man he's puttin me to sleep
nudge me if he gets over 5 decibals
i knew his first album was the good one.

But that's the way I am
And this is how I jam
All across the land
From Alabam to Band Stand
Doped up rebel with an attitude
So f___ a b____, f___ a b____, f___ a b____!!
I won't switch
Won't quit my vices
Flip the scrip
Cause I'm going to slice the righteous
Haven't you heard
I don't refrain
Free as a bird
So I won't change
Livin' it up
Givin' it up
f___in' s___ up
I'm gonna run my track
From the D to Nantucket
So f___ it
If you don't dig that
You can suck it

With an old suitcase I swear
I'll leave this place
I'll get you back in time
Can't drink you off my mind
So I'll see you when I'm sober
I've been lookin' for some reason
But I ain't found one down in Texas
I've been changin' with the seasons
Walking a new line back to Memphis
