  • He said he had to stop
    He hadn't had a drop of anything
    Stronger than coffee
    In ten months, three weeks
    And one long day

    He pushed away his plate
    Said it's better late than never done
    When it comes to getting right
    It took a while but I saw the light

    He said some things that cast long shadows
    That I never will out run
    And every day I spend living

    With ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong
    Grab a chair 'cause the list is long
    I can write you a country song
    About the reasons I'll be going home
    To a house full of memories
    Things I wish I'd done differently
    And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong
    Ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong

    He said there's a spot of paint
    And it just ain't the right shade
    But it covers up the hole I made
    Where I broke my wrist the night she left
    And there's a lot of friends
    That I ain't seen in a lot of years
    But some are still hanging around
    In old pictures I can't take down

    He said some things that cast long shadows
    That I never will out run
    And every day I do battle

    With ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong
    Grab a chair 'cause the list is long
    I can write you a country song
    About the reasons I'll be going home
    To a house full of memories
    Things I wish I'd done differently
    And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong
    Ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong

    I got a heart full of memories
    Things I wish I'd done differently
    And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong
    Ghosts of all the things I've done wrong

    He said he had to stop
    He hadn't had a drop of anything
    Stronger than coffee
    In ten months, three weeks
    And one long day Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
