Jamey Johnson – Playing The Part lyrics
Taking a dip on the sunset strip in the mornin'
Ain't nothing like the smell of tofu and high dollar wine
They said maybe all of them cars locking down the I-5
Yeah I find it amazing these rats I've been chasing
Are helping me remember a time

When the only la I knew was lower Alabama
Back when me and Hannah were wishing on a southern star
Now it's so complicated, I really hate it, why'd I ever want to go so far
Taking depression pills in the Hollywood Hills
Acting like I'm playing the part

All this gripping and grinning, losing and winning, and running
Promises break like an egg on the hot asphalt
What the hell was I thinking, drinking like I'd never get caught
These high dollar women, and the fame and the fortune,
Ain't worth the ticket I bought

When the only la I knew was lower Alabama
Back when me and Hannah were wishing on a southern star
Now it's so complicated, I really hate it, why'd I ever want to go so far
Taking depression pills in the Hollywood Hills
Acting like I'm playing the part

Taking depression pills in the Hollywood Hills
Acting like I'm playing the part
