That Is Why

 

Got a feeling your headed into a bad wind my friend

And that is why I lay it out on you

Troubleís where you look for it even on good days my friend

And that is why we all get what we do

 

Well youíve been runnin round in circles

Just a lookin for some tail to chase and bend

Itís time to climb out of the canyons

Before cougars lay your carcass to waste again

 

And if youíve been drinking a little excessively my friend

That is why I shine the light on you

Finding out the hard way has its real benefits my friend

And that is why Iím not feeling cruel

 

Well youíve been lyin to the mother of a son with a daughter

Bout your wife at home

And youíll notch yourself another while your sisterís younger brother

Gets life alone

 

And if youíre to convince us that everythingís OK my friend

That is why weíre not sure whatís true

Every road with a bridge out is a sure disaster my friend

And that is why she signs are there for you

 

Well she hurt you first you hurt her back

She doesnít know what cards are wild and stacked up your sleeve

So you pound until the hour

Prescribed solely by your power and will to leave

 

And if thatís the road youíre choosing to take again my friend

That is why the wreckerís all come for you

Driving home the .08 is not just bad thing my friend

That is why Iíll light a candle for you

That is we burn a candle for you

That is why Iím not feeling cruel
