Divorce Separation Blues

Album: True Sadness (2016)
  • I'm gonna keep on living
    Even though I sometimes do
    Fantasize about disappearing
    Down in the ocean blue
    Just to get some peace and quiet
    From the warfare inside my heart
    Well I've been under ear-splitting fire
    Ever since we've been apart

    Well I'm gonna wash the dishes
    Pay the bills and watch the news
    I've got the tough education
    No celebration
    Divorce separation blues

    Yodel eh hee yodelo lodi lay he yodel lay he

    Well I'm gonna keep on waking
    And rising up before the sun
    And lying in the dark wide awake
    When everybody else is done

    And sleeping in their beds so peaceful
    Dreaming with the love they choose
    I've got the tough education
    No celebration
    Divorce separation blues

    Yodel eh hee yodelo lodi lay he yodel lay he

    And I'll sign on
    The line beneath my name
    The road is gone
    I can't go back the way we came

    Well neither one of us
    Really wanna hear the town
    We try to keep our friends at bay
    Try to keep the gossip down

    Well some folks just want the dirt
    And don't even care if it's true
    But then again who cares who's talking
    I'm worried for myself and you

    And I'll sign on
    The line beneath my name
    The road is gone
    I can't go back the way we came

    They say one of every two
    Bound to be set aflame
    Every level of resentment
    Responsibility and blame
    Well now I'm bound to break a promise
    One I made to God and you

    I've got the tough education
    No celebration
    Divorce separation blues

    I've got the tough education
    No celebration
    Bad communication
    Worse interpretation
    Love deprivation
    Pain allocation
    Soul devastation
    Cold desolation
    Life complication
    Resuscitation
    Divorce separation blues

    Yodel eh hee, olay hee, olay hee, olay hee
    Yodel eh hee yodelo lodi lay he yodel lay he Writer/s: TIMOTHY AVETT, ROBERT CRAWFORD, SCOTT AVETT
