  • It ain't easy putting up with
    A road dog with a cup with
    A little Jack in it
    You talk about the backseat
    I don't know, don't ask me
    How she sat in it

    She carried my burdens and paid my bail
    Put a Tennessee breeze in my Carolina sail
    And set me free

    I don't pray much anymore
    For this old troubadour's
    Happiness, wishes, wants, and needs
    End of my ropes, hopes and dreams
    Spend my living giving thanks
    For the ships I never sank
    Every big, every little in the every day things
    The notes and the words and the songs I sing
    To the ones doing life with me

    Coulda easily said goodbye to
    This runaway train you're tied to
    I know I don't get it
    Baby how you roll with it

    The fists and the fights and the scars of the battle
    The ups and the downs of the judges gavel
    How'd you wind up in my unravel?

    I don't pray much anymore
    For this old troubadour's
    Happiness, wishes, wants, and needs
    End of my ropes, hopes and dreams
    Spend my living giving thanks
    For the ships I never sank
    Every big, every little in the every day things
    The notes and the words and the songs I sing
    To the ones doing life with me

    You're my faith in the grace every sunrise brings
    Set me free

    I don't pray much anymore
    For this old troubadour's
    Happiness, wishes, wants, and needs
    End of my ropes, hopes and dreams
    Spend my living giving thanks
    For the ships I never sank
    You're my faith in the grace ever sunrise brings
    Every big, every little in the every day things
    The notes and the words and the songs I sing
    To the ones doing life with me
