Stevie Ray Vaughan – Life By The Drop lyrics

[Verse 1]
Hello there my old friend
Not so long ago it was 'til the end

We played outside in the pouring rain
On our way up the road we started over again

[Chorus]
You're living a dream as though you're on top
My mind is aching and Lord it won't stop
That's how it's happened livin' life by the drop

[Verse 2]
Up and down that road in our worn out shoes
Talking 'bout good thangs and singing the blues
You went your way and I stayed behind
We both knew it was just a matter of time


[Chorus]
Livin' a dream as though you're on top
My mind is aching and Lord it won't stop
That's how it happens livin' life by the drop

[Verse 3]
No waste of time, we're alive today
Turning up the past, there's no easier way
Time's been between us, a means to an end
God it's good to be here walkin' together my friend

[Bridge]
Living our dream...
My mind stopped aching...

[Outro]
That's how it happened livin' life by the drop

That's how it happened livin' life by the drop

That's how it happened livin' life by the drop...

    Song was written by Doyle Bramhall for SRV. I'm not sure it's as deep as people imagine. Once he gets clean, he does however look back with regret on the part of his life that he spent in an alcohol drug induced hazed. It's over and done. And now they just look ahead taking it a day at the time. Bramhall also struggled with addiction. It's basically a song of sadness from the past. In the end he will roll with life as it unfolds, and look back on with happiness and his sobriety.
