Turnpike Troubadours – Come As You Are lyrics

Riding the heels of a seven day stone
Laughin' together and drinking alone
Stitch it up quick now, it's come all unsewn
My right arm around you, you're already gone

Well you come as you are and you leave with a smile
You got a way, honey, you got a style
That you play
So I wake in the mornin' and start out my day
To the sound of you walkin' away
To the sound of you walkin' away

Well how did I get to the shape that I'm in
A younger man's thoughts, some tonic, some gin
And now I'm fumblin' around for it, darlin' don't go
The click of the heel to the tap of the toe

Well you come as you are and you leave with a smile
You got a way, honey, you got a style
That you play
So I wake in the mornin' with nothin' to say
To the sound of you walkin' away
To the sound of you walkin' away

Well I make the coffee, head to the blinds
I cut ties with everything I can't find
I blow a bad word when I talk with an old friend
Lord, you're a godsend
I've got my heart set now on changin' your mind

Well you come as you are and you leave with a smile
You got a way, honey, you got a style
That you play
So I wake in the mornin' and start out my day
To the sound of you walkin' away
To the sound of you walkin' away
To the sound of you walkin' away
