The High Cost Of Low Living

The High Cost of Low Living

by Gregg Allman, Warren Haynes, Jeff Anders, and Ron Burgin



You're the life of the party, everybody's host

Until you need somewhere you can hide

All your good-time friends, and your fair-weather has-beens

All those were just along for the ride



Well you think you'll survive

Lord, you better think twice

Nobody rides for nothing

You gotta step up and pay the price



CHORUS:

It's the high cost of low living

It's high time to turn yourself around

The high cost of low living

It's bound to put you six feet in the ground



So many years they loved you, still you just can't tell

The real ones from those who drop your name

And all the while behind your back they rip the flesh right from your bones

You should know by now: we're all fair game



You've been chasin' each dream with whiskey

From here to Tokyo

Usin' up all your real friends

There's no place left to go



CHORUS



Bridge:

Don't look behind you

Don't look back

Don't try to find reasons

For the past

The past is gone

Gone at last



CHORUS

High Cost of Low Living

You're the life of the party, everybody's host, and still you need somewhere you can hide.
All your good time friends, and your fair-weather has-beens, God knows, were just along for the ride.
You think you're a survivor, but boy, you'd better think twice.
No one rises up for nothing, so step up and pay the price, 'cause it's the high cost of low living. Ainít it high time you turn yourself around? The high cost of low living is bound to put you six feet in the ground.

So many here who love you, and still you just can't tell the real ones, and those that drop your name.
All the while behind your back, they rip the flesh right from your bones.
You should know by now we're all fair game.
You've been chasing each dream with whiskey, from here to Tokyo, using up all your real friends in places left to go.
'Cause it's the high cost of low living, ainít it high time to turn yourself around? Yeah, the high cost of low living is bound to put you six feet in the ground.

Don't look behind you, don't look back.
Don't try to find reason in the past, 'cause the past is gone, gone at last.
And it's the high cost of low living, and it's high time to turn yourself around.
Or the high cost of low living is bound to put you six feet in the ground.

Marley... One tiny mistake: "Don't look behind you don't look back don't try and find reasons IN (not for) the past the past gone, gone at last..."
