My Soul, My Own

lyrics

Pawned the family Bible
Prayed my last Amen
Mainline's down and my smokes run out
But I'm never going again
No, I'm never going again
No, I'm never going again

Took my daddy's rifle
Traded my IOUs
Got some favors saved with the vile and depraved
But ain't no one coming though
Ain't no one coming though
Ain't no one coming though

When the dark times come are you wise or are you older?
River on fire and the winds getting colder
Who's gonna hear you when you break down crying
Put a blanket on your bed when you fall down dying

My soul, my own
My soul, my own
Was it something that you thought
That you should be, but you're not
Do you think that you get it? You get it?
You get it but you don't
My soul, my own

Every man's a sinner
And I've done more than I should
Never had much but a smile and the touch
But I got it when I could
Yeah, I got it when I could
I got it when I could

When the dark times come are you wise or are you older?
River on fire and the winds getting colder
Who's gonna hear you when you break down crying
Put a blanket on your bed when you fall down dying

My soul, my own
My soul, my own
Was it something that you thought
That you should be, but you're not
Do you think that you get it? You get it?
You get it but you don't
My soul, my own

Lord, don't quit me now
Lord, don't quit me now
Lord, don't quit me now

Lord, don't quit me now
Lord, don't quit me now
Lord, don't quit me now

My soul, my own
My soul, my own
Was it something in a smile
Made you throw down on the pile
Ride out the turn, you and me, and our jagoff hearts
My soul, my own

My soul, my own
My soul, my own
My soul, my own
