lyrics

"i've seen too many cloudy days"
he said through his teeth as he stared up towards the sky
"not to say that i'm always expecting rain
the temperature drops, i stop, don't ask me why"

three falls strand a man of might
if two wrongs won't fix it up right
when the bow leaks, the boat sinks in its own good time

"springtime the river always floods
look there toward those trees, you can see, it ain't nothin new
you can't farm in five feet of swap and mud
you can't sell when it's worth less then what's still due"

three falls strand a man of might
if two wrongs won't fix it up right
when the bow leaks, the boat sinks in its own good time

"i've talked less since the day i took a life
with debts left unpaid, i schemed how to make ends meet
a banker, a briefcase and a knife
his long walk home down that quiet, deserted street"

three falls strand a man of might
if two wrongs won't fix it up right
when the bow leaks, the boat sinks in its own good time

one shot to jump that morning train
seems a last chance has always been my fate?
when the rules never change
still lookin for a break cuz there's always
an angle left to play

an outlaw, he's tired, he's on the run
caught by the law as he's headin for the door
shot down, reaching for his gun
five feet away across the dirty plywood floor
