Better Days - Uncle Kracker

85 miles out of Nashville, thinkin bout the way things change
Try an keep it by the reigns
I'm a lone drifter, big money flipper
Take anything you got on the rocks in a snifter
I missed her in Kentucky, went down to Louisiana
I never had no lovin like I had in Alabama
A man of my word and out to hurt nobody
I'm just a mc to keep the boogie in the party
Been sittin lodi dodi since 84 and
I'll be sittin lodi dodi till I'm eighty four
I couldn't ask for more, life's been sweet
So you can save the planet I'll save your seat
I been gone for weeks, I ain't slept in days
I can't find myself in this self made maze
It's been so long since I've been fine
I'm just tryin to see the bottom of the bottle of wine
And I know I'll see better days
Well I know you'll see things my way
I never thought about change until
Spend a little time where time stood still
Been lookin for a mill, but I keep comin up shy
I been a broke fool, I ain't tryin to be that guy
Wanna ride like lightning, roll like thunder
I'm tryin to get some money I ain't gettin any younger
At times I wonder at, at times I won't
Sometimes I give a f_ck, but most times I don't
Don't, don't even care
Through stained glass windows these eyse stare
I try to stay straight but it's kickin my ass
Everytime I look ahead I get a glimpse of the past
I sit half mass like a soldier's flag
That's why my left leg limp's and my D_ckies sag
It's been so long since I've been fine
I'm just tryin to see the bottom of the bottle of wine
And I know I'll see better days
Well I know you'll see things my way
And I know I'll see better days
Well I know you'll see things my way
Well I been all around this crooked land
I came across all walks, I shook Jim Beam's hand
I got no plans and no place to go
It keeps gettin harder to just say no
I see the people laugh and I see the people cry
That's how some live and that's how some die
Well me, myself I'm gonna sit righ here
And I'm a watch this this world break down in tears
All my fears and dark gray skies
Couldn't crack my smile or break my stride
Got too much pride, I got too much shout
I might be down, but I still ain't out
Got to much time and that's all I have
When I leave this world I'll still be sad
It's been so long since I've been fine
I'm just tryin to see the bottom of the bottle of wine
And I know I'll see better days
Well I know you'll see things my way
And I know I'll see better days
Well I know you'll see things my way
