Lyrics

I see myself through a looking glass
Ain't got no future, just a worn out past
I've got a milk cow waiting
and the "mean woman blues";
I've got a Fender ringing
with it's vacuum tubes
I've got callouses galore
from the guitar too
I've got to move on past it

A woman I met reminded me of you
From the top of her lip
to the bottom of her shoe.
Then she took off her hat
Laid down her glasses
Threw caution to the wind
Flashed her long eyelashes
There was nothing left to do but to crawl through the ashes
that you left behind

Troubadour strings
Won't bring me to you
I've wandered through dust with no relief
Never did I think you'd leave me behind
There's a cost to all of this
and it's mine

I've been taking stock
I've been poor and I've been rich
I've been standing in your doorway
I've been walking in the ditch
Well your mama don't miss you
and your dad does fine
and your brother don't care
If he's doing up a line
Your sons and your daughters
Never find the time
to be with you

You can take all these ashes
and gather them up
Decide for yourself
if they amount to much.
Never did I think you'd leave me behind
There's a cost to all of this
And it's mine
