Lucinda Williams – Dark Side Of Life lyrics

Jim Lauderdale harmony vocal
Skip Edwards piano
Don Reed fiddle
Pete Andersen guitar
Dan Fredman bass
Josh Lee White drums

Think you never know me
When you turn and walk away
You think I don't know the troubles
You face everyday
I know all about the things
That cuts you like a knife
Yes I know about the dark side of life
Souls on your shoes are almost worn thru
You've been running hard at best searching for something new
You can search high and low
For peace you'll never find
While you're living on the dark side of life
You live on the dark side of life
You can't tell what's wrong and what's right
You don't look too good
There's circles neath your eyes
Cause your living on the dark side of life


You sit on a bar stool all dressed up
Your broke and your down
And your looking for love
But you won't find the kind of love that's sweet and right
While your living on the dark side of life
Cause your living on the dark side of life

From "A Town South Of Bakersfield Volume 2"
