Well I grew up lean and hungry,
I worked hard for my money,
Said I'm gonna live my life the way I please.
Spent some time on the road of life,
Saw an angel once and the devil twice,
I came across some things that I don't need.

Like a cold-hearted woman,
Whiskey in my water,
And only one way out of a motel room.
Payments on the Cadillac,
And too many questions.
And old guitars that just won't stay in tune.

You know there's good and bad breaks,
You learn from your mistakes.
It's all in how you handle them do's and don'ts.
A hillbilly boy is hard to convince,
Wild and stubborn and not much sense.
But I've got enough to know what I don't want.

Like a cold-hearted woman,
Whiskey in my water,
And only one way out of a motel room.
Payments on the Cadillac,
And too many questions.
And old guitars that just won't stay in tune.
And old guitars that just won't stay in tune.
