I Ain't Living Long Like This

Waylon Jennings
Language: English



I look for trouble and I found it son
Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun
I tried to run, but I don't think I can
You make one move and you're a dead man friend
Ain't living long like this
Can't live long like this, can I baby?

He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back
And left me reeling on a steel rail rack
They got 'em all in the jailhouse baby
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?

Grew up in Houston off the wayside drives
Son of a carhop and some all night dives
Dad drove a stock car to an early death
All I remember was a drunk man's breath
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?

You know the story how the wheel goes 'round
Don't let 'em take you to the man downtown
Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse baby

I live with Angel she's a roadhouse queen
Makes Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee
I want to love her but I don't know how
I'm at the bottom of the jailhouse now
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?
