Whiskey and Gold (song)

I’m on a borrowed page with words that I stole
Only thing I see is whiskey and gold
Sitting by the candle in the creeping cold
only thing I know is whiskey and gold

Born in the light of a fiery moon
trying to make my way hope I get there soon
living a life of booze and pills
but it’s the writing of the music that brings me chills

I’m in a stolen car with friends I do not know
going back to Mississippi to kill the crow
never had time for the debts I owed
they’re gonna lock me down where freedom don’t flow

I’m on a borrowed page with words that I stole
trying keep from falling in this deep dark hole
staring at the stars while the fire getting low
only thing I know is whiskey and gold

only come to believe what I been told
there ain’t nothing in this life but whiskey and gold
nobody can tell the troubles I been sold
and I treat ‘em all the same with whiskey and gold

nobody coming to save me now
but the whiskey and gold will take what I can allow
nobody coming to save me when
the whiskey and gold take me under again
I’m in a borrowed life where I’m a shadow man
holding all the losing cards in my hand
they say the end is coming far too soon
but I can see the rising chaos in then light of the moon

I’m on a borrowed page with words that I stole
trying keep from falling in this deep dark hole
staring at the stars while the fire getting low
only thing I know is whiskey and gold

only thing I know is whiskey and gold
only thing I know is whiskey and gold
