Jackie Greene – Gettin' By lyrics

The game must be loaded, cause I never win
These things never did treat me good.
But keep the fire warm, dear and I'll see you again
Lord knows that someday I should

It's a strange old feeling, these passing lane blues
But it's nothing I ain't never felt before.
You nailed down my conscience and you forced me to choose
And my soul I let slip through your door

And I'll be doing just fine, oh fine
No matter how hard I don't try
And if it's raining on the fourth of July
I believe I'll be gettin' by

The cheaper the ride, the cheaper the thrill
You can't trust the shadow through the curtain.
But if I took you for granted, would you send me the bill?
There's one thing that I know for certain..

All I've got is this time on my hands
And time, oh time it's a breakin'
Just one lost memory and the price you demand
Yes I loved you but I could have been mistaken

And I'll be doing just fine, oh fine
No matter how hard I don't try
And if it's raining on the fourth of July
I believe I'll be gettin' by

Time makes you older (or that's what they say)
I come to find out it ain't so.
Time makes you colder and farther away
And farther and farther you go...
