Drive-by Truckers – Heathens lyrics
Something about the wrinkle in your forehead
Tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
If we get the van out of the ditch before morning
Ain't nobody got to know about what I done

And I never hear a single word you say
When you tell me not to have my fun
It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone

And I don't need to be forgiven
By them people in the neighborhood
When we first hooked up, you looked me in the eye
You said "Paw, we just ain't no good."

We were heathens in their eyes at the time
I guess I am just a heathen still
And I never have repented for the wrongs you say I've done
I done what I feel

It was a difficult delivery
Now he's growing up mean and strong
When you tell me that it's getting just a little bit tight
Ain't the first time I been outgrown

And now I'm gonna push a little harder
She ain't revved till the rods are thrown
And I'll walk away

And I don't need to be forsaken
By you or anybody else
And I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me
The dangers I pose to myself

And these times can take their toll sometimes
And I know you feel the same way too
It just gets so hard to keep between the ditches
When the roads wind the way they do
