Goddamn Lonely Love
Drive-By Truckers Lyrics


I got green and I got blues
And everyday there's a little less difference between the two
I belly-up and disappear
Well I ain't really drowning 'cause I see the beach from here

And I could take a Greyhound home but when I got there it'd be gone
Along with everything a home is made up of
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take all of what you got
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love

Sister, listen to what your daddy says
Don't be ashamed of things that hide behind your dress
Belly-up and arch your back
Well I ain't really falling asleep, I'm fading to black

And you could come to me by plane, but that wouldn't be the same
As that old motel room in Texarkana was
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take all of what you got
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love

Stop me if you've heard this one before
A man walks into a bar and leaves before his ashes hit the floor
Stop me if I ever get that far
The sun's a desperate star that burns like every single one before

And I could find another dream
One that keeps me warm and clean
But I ain't dreamin' anymore, girl, I'm waking up
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take everything you got
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love

All I got is this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love
All I got is this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love
All I got is this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love

Seen these guys at the saloon at bamajam '08 Enterprise Alabama. My mom gave me her over 21 wrist band I was 17 and God damned if this wasn't the band playing in there. I had 6 or 7 Jim Beam doubles and stumbled out. RIP mom and thanks for 19 years of having the greatest mom on earth Cindy Green! God bless the Drive By Truckers!

Might be the most beautiful song I've ever heard. And I'm in my 60's. If you really know what it means, I'm truly sorry, I know what it means, too. But things get better in time.

I know these comments are old. But I appreciate you guys out there that are older and wiser than us younguns. If I didn't get a good figurative smack of wisdom and an "it can't be all bad" from you guys who've lived it my life woulda been over long ago.
