  • Everyday is just a little white lie
    Telling myself I'm gettin' by
    I just stay in this room and cry
    The snow it covers up the ground
    And I can't hear a single sound

    I'd turn off the TV and go for a drive
    But I can't see there's any signs of life
    Except this Christmas tree with blinking lights
    I coulda made it but I messed around
    I'm a loser with a rusted crown
    Scared if I jump in the ocean I might drown

    King of a One Horse Town
    I'm the King of a One Horse Town
    And I barely pull my weight around

    I thought about leaving but I don't know
    Wouldn't even know anywhere to go
    Guess I'll stay on desolation row
    Go get stoned and hang around
    The beat of my drum is the only sound
    I would jump into the ocean but I'm scared I'd drown

    King of a One Horse Town
    I'm a King of a One Horse Town
    I'm a King of a One Horse Town
    And I barely pull my weight around

    I'm a King of a One Horse Town
    King of a One Horse Town
    I'm a King of a One Horse Town
    And I barely pull my weight around
