You Don't Tell Me What To Do

Album: Feeling Mortal (2013)
  • So the highway is where I believe I belong
    Losing myself in the soul of a song
    And the fight for the right to be righteously wrong
    It’s a story that’s sad but it’s true

    So I sing my own songs
    And I drink when I’m thirsty
    And I will go on
    Making music, and whiskey,
    and love for as long
    As the spirit inside me
    Says you don’t tell me what to do

    Gone are the reasons for changing my mind
    Gone like the future that I left behind
    If you want to I warn you
    You’re wasting your time
    You don’t tell me what to do

    You don’t tell me what to do Writer/s: KRIS KRISTOFFERSON
