James Otto – Lowdown On The Highlife lyrics

He played guitar in a honky-tonk band
He drank Jack Daniels, black label brand
He was the life of the party
Till they closed down the bar
In the eyes of a young boy, he was a star

(Chorus:)
He'd say, "son, don't you run down the roads that i've run
And don't go and sing all the songs that i've sun
'Cause this kind of livin' takes it's toll on a man
And through the smoke and the neon i saw it first hand
I got the lowdown on the highlife
Bust still here i am."

The blues and the bottle held him under their spell
Took him to heaven and put us through hell
Well, sometimes I feel him up on this stage
His restless spirit
Still runs through my veins

(Chorus)

I got the lowdown on the highlife
But still here I am
Mmm...
