lyrics

I'm not real young but I sure aint old 
And that's where I'm a gonna be. 
The thought of slowing down my life 
Means an awful lot of things to me

Phoenix, AZ, in the drought of ‘25
The few things that the plague could spare
Was all that kept us alive

The look in my boy’s eye
As I came home empty handed
Is the same damn look now upon my brow
He who slows down becomes stranded

Take me out this place
For some saving grace
There’s a road up ahead and it gets longer

You can stay and try
But with this angry sky
How can any of this madness make us stronger?

Sing Sing 1929 made an awful small man out of me
6 years for heist that I didn’t even see

The look in my boy’s eye
When he first saw my shirt so branded
Was the same damn look now upon my brow
He who slows down becomes stranded

Take me out this place
For some saving grace
There’s a road up ahead and it gets longer

You can stay and try
But with this angry sky
How can any of this madness make us stronger?

I'm not real young but I sure aint old 
And that's where I'm a gonna be. 
The thought of slowing down my life 
Means an awful lot of things to me
