        F                         C
You can lie to your Mama, you can lie to your race 
        F                             Bb
But you canít lie to nobody with that cold steel in your face
        F                                       C
And the same God that youíre so afraid is gonna send you to hell 
       F                                        Bb
Is the same one youíre gonna answer to when the pin hits the shell
           F                          C
Well, Your sisterís been blaming everybody
        F                                  Bb
I donít blame her, man, I guess Iíd do the same 
              F                                C 
if you was my brother, man, IĎd probably stand by you. 
        F                             Bb
But you ainít, man, so I got to go my way. 


Chorus 1:
                  Dm 
And I ainít gonna crawl upon no high horse 
        Bb 
Cause I got thrown off of one 
           F
When I was young and I ainít no cowboy 
           Bb
So I ainít going where I donít belong
   Dm      
It wouldnít do you no good to let you know that 
   Bb
It damned near killed me too 
                 F                                   Bb
So I ainít gonna mourn for you, man, now that youíre gone


Me and you, we liked our pills and our whiskey
But you donít want your head full of either one when the house gets quiet and dark
Having fun used to be so damned easy
Racing trains from 2nd Street to Avalon

Chorus 2:
Take a trip down memory lane
You donít see no friendly faces 
All the houses have been painted and 
Nobody knows your name. 
Itís enough to make a man not want 
To be nobodyís Daddy
When all he thinks heís got left to hand down is guilt and shame

Chorus 1

You can lie to your Mama, you can lie to your race 
But you canít lie to nobody with that cold steel in your face
And the same God that youíre so afraid is gonna send you to hell 
Is the same one youíre gonna answer to when the pin hits the shell
