Set That Baggage Down

  • That trunk is filled with dusty air
    Ghosts that lived and still don't care
    Resist the urge to turn around
    And set it down

    Set that baggage down brother
    Set that baggage down
    Throw it in the river
    Let that baggage drown

    Every girl that left you
    Every friend that ran
    Everything that broke you
    Bury it in the sand

    Set that baggage down brother
    Set that baggage down
    Throw it in the water
    Let that baggage drown

    Leave it at the station
    Leave it in the street
    Toss it in the gutter
    Set it down by your feet
    Walk on, walk on
    Walk on down the road
    Walk on, walk on
    No need to carry that load
    No more, no more, no more, no more
    No more, no more

    When you lost your momma
    When you lost your job
    When you were feeling hungry
    No one left to rob

    Set that baggage down brother
    Set that baggage down
    Set that baggage down brother
    Set that baggage down

    Rise up, rise up yeah
    Rise up, rise up and
    Set that baggage down brother
    Set that baggage down, down, down Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
