Dead South, The - Crawdaddy Served Cold Lyrics




We did the grind for many years, too many some might say
It's easy to get lost with the taste of money on the brain
We did it so good, so good so fast
We forget some years ago we were toddlers in the grass

Life ain't easy being on the road
It's grab and go food and drinks that ain't good for the soul
Well it's long nights and coffee cups
Restless sleep for weeks and trying not to mess up

Well we played our hand
But we killed our fellow man
We traded his mind for a wondrous time
Oh well, what does it mean
When you let a brother down
Can this be fixed somehow?

Well the tires flat, the engine leaks
Suspensions busted and the belt is weak
We always seem to make it home
But each time we leave again
You can see the sadness in the man
How did we miss this for so long

Life ain't easy being on the road
It's a van full of filthy trash and a bag of stinky clothes
Well it's long drives and cigarettes
Sweaty suits for weeks and trying to play our best

Well we played our hand
But we killed our fellow man
We traded his mind for a wondrous time
Oh well, what does it mean
When you let a brother down
Can this be fixed somehow?
Can this be fixed somehow?
Can this be fixed somehow?

If you just needed
Someone to call you friend
I should have seen it
Right from the start

If you just needed
Someone to call you friend
I should have seen it
Right from the start

  1. OsakaRose

    Not knowing much about the band except that I love their music; is this song about a former band member who died or something? It has that feel to it.

  2. Saulo Iglesias

    Please stop being fu**ing awesome. I have to listen to other bands and you wont let me.

    Thanks for all the lyrics on the new songs!!!

    BigSoftGrizzly

    Sergi Heideman yeah of course dude!! I love the dead south as much as anyone, just want others to enjoy them all well! And be able to sing along!

    Dave Hyder

    I found these fine young musicians a while back. I forget the first song I heard from them and youtube was just rollin but I thought, at first, Nate was SRV singing. I have since listened to them pretty much everyday and told all my other music loving buddies about them. "The Good Lord" seems to be a favorite amongst them but TDS have so many great songs. Knowing the issue Colton had, this song means more to me than "That Smell" by Skynyrnd, also a song about a band member but for a completely different reason.........maybe? Can't listen to this song at work. What a tribute to Colton.........you have really good friends Sir!

    @BigSoftGrizzly thanks
