Too Many Reasons

 Too Many Reasons

I got loose ends, I’m ragged and tattered
Loose ends, I’m beaten and battered
I got loose ends all flappin’ in the wind
I got loose ends, my plans are shattered
Loose ends, my hopes are all scattered
I got loose ends, I’m flappin’ in the wind

I’m all broke down on a dusty old road
Broke down, I can’t carry this load
And them sad old bloodhounds is nippin’ at my heels
I’m all broke down like a rusty old truck
Broke down, could you lend me a buck?
‘Cause I ain’t got nothin’ and I’m too tired to steal

I got too much week and not enough end
Too much old and not enough friend
Too much down and not enough time
Too many reasons and not enough rhyme
Too many reasons and not enough rhyme

I’m all tore up like a stack of bills
Tore up, I think I’ve had my had fill
But when I speak my mind it comes out like a joke
I’m all tore up and knocked around
Tore up on the cold cold ground
And that burnin’ fire ain’t nothing but a bunch of smoke

Me and my girl, we shook our stuff
Me and my girl, we couldn’t get enough
It's been a long time since I danced like that
Me and my girl went up to the show
Me and my girl, we got laid down low
Man, it’s been a long time since I danced like that

I got too much week and not enough end
Too much old and not enough friend
Too much down and not enough time
Too many reasons and not enough rhyme
Too many reasons and not enough rhyme
Too many reasons and not enough rhyme
