Trailer Hitch

Album: Southern Gravity (2014)
  • I wanna buy you a drink
    Maybe one for this whole town
    I may not have that much
    But I don't mind spreading it around
    Everybody chasing something
    I don't know why they're running
    I take my time to the finish line
    'Cause we all end up with nothing

    I don't know why, know why
    Everybody wanna die rich
    Diamonds, champagne,
    Work your way down that list.
    We try, everybody tries
    Tries to fit into that ditch
    You can't take it with you when you go
    Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch
    Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch

    Started my day
    Giving away
    All of my baseball cards
    It felt so good by the afternoon
    I gave some guy my car
    It ain't about what you're driving
    Or about the gold you're piling
    The less I have to worry about
    The more time I got for smiling

    I don't know why, know why
    Everybody wanna die rich
    Champagne, new plane
    Work your way down that list.
    We try, everybody tries
    Tries to fit into that ditch
    You can't take it with you when you go
    Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch
    Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch

    Hey, hey

    You can stack it up
    Pack it up
    Tie it with a big, red bow
    Get a great, big truck
    Back it all up
    But you can't take it with you when you go
    Can't take it when you go

    I don't know why, know why
    Everybody wanna die rich
    Diamonds, champagne, newest of the new planes
    Work your way down that list.
    We try, everybody tries
    Tries to fit into that ditch
    You can't take it with you when you go
    Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch
    Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch

    Hey, hey
    Hey, hey
    Give it away,
    Hey, hey
    Give it away Writer/s: BRANDON BUSH, KRISTIAN BUSH, TIM OWENS
