I took a night shift another nickel on the dime, try to play it straight and make it different this time, still waiting to meet the next ex-wife
It's either watching these gauges for Monsanto, or a bar-back job for the casino, the Army won't want me after what this body's been through

Would you take me back North Carolina? Would you take me back Arkansas?
Blissful days still there to remember, methamphetamine was the final straw

I had a killer job in a backup band playin' guitar in Branson
Two shows a night brought the money to chase down sin
Now it's another weekend and I'm lonely at home, late night tv evangelist drone, I'm healthy now but I really don't know if I'll ever be free

Would you take me back North Carolina? Would you take me back Arkansas?
Blissful days still there to remember, methamphetamine was the final straw

    Stumbling twice and being on the cusp of the hat trick when life with a third chance ain't what it's cracked up to be.
