Artist: Gillian Welch
Title: Good Til Now
Album: Hell Among the Yearlings
Authors: Rawlings/Welch

Balled out wasted and I feel I'm going down.
Balled out wasted and I feel I'm going down.
Goodbye, darling, I been good till now.

I went walking with a girl as pure as milk.
I went walking with a girl pure as milk.
Standing on the corner, sweating through a yellow silk.

Rocks in my pocket and a devil on my back.
Rocks in my pockets and a devil on my back.
You won't even come across the tracks.

Balled out wasted and I feel I'm going down.
Balled out wasted and I feel I'm going down.
Goodbye, darling, I been good till now.
