I woke up Monday morning at forty five past ten
I wondered if I would get up and do it all again
On a good day a fifth is gone by three in the afternoon
I'm too damn young to be leaving this world so soon
I've been down that road before
I've been down that road before

After she left me Lord well it hit me awful hard
I wondered if there was still some of me that could
Lay for days face down on my apartment floor
But one day I got up and I walked out the door
I've been down that road before
I've been down that road before

My life is filled with pain and sorrow
I barely make it day to day
Going to see what comes tomorrow
Deal with pain in the same way
Because I've been down that road before
Standing in line with my last $10 for lottery ticket and some devils water
Waiting in line going to do it again going to buy a fifth of liquor and drink it and then I'll walk down
I've been down that road. I've been down that road. I've been down that road. I've been down that road. I've been down that road. I've been down that road. I've been down that road. I've been down that road before.
