<div id="content">By townes van zandt<br /><br />Waitin' Around To Die<br /><br />Sometimes I dont know where<br />This dirty road is taking me<br />Sometimes I cant even see the reason why<br />I guess I keep a-gamblin<br />Lots of booze and lots of ramblin<br />Its easier than just waitin around to die<br /><br />One time, friends, I had a ma<br />I even had a pa<br />He beat her with a belt once cause she cried<br />She told him to take care of me<br />Headed down to tennessee<br />Its easier than just waitin around to die<br /><br />I came of age and I found a girl<br />In a tuscaloosa bar<br />She cleaned me out and hit in on the sly<br />I tried to kill the pain, bought some wine<br />And hopped a train<br />Seemed easier than just waitin around to die<br /><br />A friend said he knew<br />Where some easy money was<br />We robbed a man, and brother did we fly<br />The posse caught up with me<br />And drug me back to muskogee<br />Its two long years Ive been waitin around to die<br /><br />Now Im out of prison<br />I got me a friend at last<br />He dont drink or steal or cheat or lie<br />His names codine<br />Hes the nicest thing Ive seen<br />Together were gonna wait around and die<br />Together were gonna wait around and die</div>
