Shakey Graves - Pay The Road Lyrics




Well, one of these days
Gonna pay the road
Yeah, one of these days
Gonna run for fun
Yeah, one of these days when you're all alone
Out back wishing for the grass to grow

Oh yeah, one of these days
Gonna run for fun
Yeah, one of these days
Gonna settle down
Yeah, when the cops ain't catching
And the boys ain't jumping
Lord, you gonna wish your heart was thumping

Yeah, but the air keeps saying that the water keeps bringing
No troubles in life
No girls worth keeping

Yeah, and everybody's wishing
Nobody's praying
And the troubles in life are not worth saying, no

Yeah, well, one of these days
Gonna pay the road
Yeah, one of these days
Gonna run for fun
Yeah, one of these days when you're all alone
Out back wishing for the grass to grow, oh

Yeah, one of these days
Gonna pay the road
Oh, one of these days
I'm gonna run for fun
One of these days when you're all alone
Out back wishing for the grass to grow

Oh yeah, one of these days when you're all alone
You're gonna wish your grass would grow

Yeah, one of these days with your eyes wide open
You're gonna see your coffin closin'

  5. DTOM, ¿eStamos?

    Dont really like the lyrics. Grass grow? Usually shakeys lyrics are great. I like the no girls worth keepin and everybodys wishin nobodys prayin lines but the rest seems like throwaway lyrics.

  6. Elise

    Anyone have any theories about what Pay The Road means?
