End Of The Line

And now the gravity of trouble was more than I could bear,

At times my luck was so bad, I had to fold my hands,

Almost lost my soul, rarely I could find my head,

Wake up early in the morning, feeling nearly dead.

I was never afraid of danger, took trouble on the chin,

Mountains I have climbed, that have killed a thousand men,

Spent most of my lifetime downtown, sleepin’ behind the wheel,

Never needed anybody, I was king of the hill.


Oh, when I think about the old days,

Lord, it sends chills up and down my spine,

Yeah life ain’t what it seems, on the boulevard of broken dreams,

Guess I opened my eyes in the nick of time,

‘Cause it sure felt like the end of the line.

No matter how hard I run, I just can’t get away

I try to do my best, but the devil gets in my way

Spent most of my lifetime downtown, sleepin’ behind the wheel

‘Till it all came down to kill or be killed
