Off The Ground

The sun it rises, oh every day
O’er that same old stretch of highway
And as I fall to pieces again
I remember how it all began

Well you took one step towards me and I took two steps around
We took three steps together, and then we both fell down
We picked ourselves back up and then we turned ourselves around
Well I can’t believe we got off the ground

It’s a long, long road to Memphis and it’s a long and lonely night
And there’s a long, long line of fools behind me, you know it ain’t right
But each time that I drive it I see your face again
And I remember how it all began

Well you took one step towards me and I took two steps around
We took three steps together, and then we both fell down
We picked ourselves back up and then we turned ourselves around
Well I can’t believe we got off the ground

So when the night comes and I close my eyes
And all these memories come from where they hide
I know that I’ve done my part
And I promise you won’t break another heart

Cuz you took one step towards me and I put two shots in your head
And I drove three thousand miles away leaving you for dead
So I’ll pick myself back up cuz I just gotta blow this town
At least there’s no way you’ll ever get off the ground

Now there’s four Federal Marshalls servin’ five felony counts
And the six-guns that they’re firin’ at me, I know there’s no way out
I can’t pick myself back up and I can’t turn this thing around
At least we’ll both be six feet under ground
At least we’ll both be six feet under ground
You and me six feet under ground
