lyrics

Take me down to he deeper water
Where the river flows like wine
It takes me back to our younger days
Fools paradise, loose all track of time

And there we were, thinking that we’d never part
Look at us now life seems so different

That’s why, Im walking
That’s why, Im singing this song
That’s why I need to go back home
Cause the minute I stop thinking
Is the moment I start drinking the blues

I’m now working 3 jobs just to pay the rent
When I get home the money’s already spent
X-wife and the kids don’t see much of me
I’m in over my head, baby help me please

And here I am, in this drastic situation
Look at me now, in the slump of it all

That’s why, Im walking
That’s why, Im singing this song
That’s why I need to go back home
Cause the minute I stop thinking
Is the moment I start drinking the blues
