Margo Price Just Like Love

Why are we here, no one knows

Killin’ and lovin’ and wearin’ clothes

Talkin’ and yellin’ and tradin’ blows

And walkin’ around like fools

Who am I, I’m like you

Who are you, you are what you do

Do me wrong and you’re wrong too

And that’s the Golden Rule

Ain’t it just like love

To double cross you again

Get right under your skin

Do you in

Money and war, it’s insane

Acting like the devil with God’s name

But us and them, we’re both the same

And we’re all left to suffer

So dust to dust and bread to bread

Sin and pain and loneliness

Life is real and so is death

And we’re all born blood brothers

Ain’t it just like love

To double cross you again

Get right under your skin

Do you in

Margo Price Cocaine Cowboys

Well the boys round here ain’t like the boys back home

They don’t plant the fields, they won’t work the farms

The boys round here well they talk too fast

When the times get hard, no they won’t last

Cocaine cowboys

They’re bad in the saddle

But they’re coming from New York, LA, and Seattle

They’re all hat, they don’t rope no cattle

They don’t ride no bulls

Cocaine cowboys, they never get sleep

With their bloodshot eyes, their cigarette teeth

I wish that someone warned me

Stay away from them cocaine cowboys

Well they’re riding the rails right before the show

Better call up James when the bag gets low

The crowd thins out the longer they play

You can’t write a song with nothing to say

Cause the cocaine cowboys

They’re bad in the saddle

But they come in from New York, LA, and Seattle

They’re all hat, they don’t rope no cattle

They don’t ride no bulls

Cocaine cowboys, they never get sleep

They’re out in the bars and grinding their teeth

And I wish that someone warned me

Stay away from them cocaine cowboys

And I wish that someone warned me

Stay away from them cocaine cowboys

Margo Price Desperate And Depressed

I’m pissed off at the number

Of people that I meet

Who go to shake my hand

With a viper up their sleeve

They freeze me out all winter

Burn me up all summer

Try to take my money

When I’m desperate and depressed

Ain’t it a mess

I’ve played for free and paid for

The miles on my truck

Got no sleep in motels

Cause the worry keeps me up

It almost drives me crazy

Thinking about my baby

And how he’s gonna love me

If I’m desperate and depressed

Can’t get no rest

Momma never told me

That things would be this way

Daddy tried to warn me

That there’d be hell to pay

If I can’t find the money

Then I can’t buy the time

I’m stuck here making

Someone else’s dime

We busked in Sarasota

I made twenty-seven bucks

I wept for Richard Manuel

Thinking I might have his luck

You talked behind my back

But only stabbed me in the front

But don’t think you can hurt me

Cause I’m desperate and depressed

Ain’t it a mess

Please, somebody tell me

How to make it stop

This world feels like a roller coaster

I just can’t get off

Tried rehab and probation

Tried self-medication

But none of that can cure you

When you’re desperate and depressed

Ain’t it a mess

Momma never told me

That things would be this way

Daddy tried to warn me

That there’d be hell to pay

But if I can’t find the money

Then I can’t buy the lie

Oh, ten percent of nothing

Ain’t a dime

So don’t you try to sell me back what’s mine

I’ll be desperate and depressed until I die

Margo Price How The Mighty Have Fallen

You thought you’d see

How green the grass it grew

On the other side

That divides me from you

You said I held you back

From bigger things

Now that you’re running wild

You’re running back to me

How the mighty have fallen

Like they do every time

And to me you come crawling

With your crown at your side

You were high on your mountain

Now it’s back to the farm

How the mighty have fallen

Right back into my arms

I never meant to keep you

From being you

But I know that’s an easier thing

To say than do

You brushed me off

And said I’d never grow

Now that you’re on your knees

You’re smaller than before

How the mighty have fallen

Like they do every time

And to me you come crawling

With your crown at your side

You were high on your mountain

Now it’s back to the farm

How the mighty have fallen

Right back into my arms

How the mighty have fallen

Right back into my arms

Margo Price Good Luck (For Ben Eyestone)

Once I had a few words left to say

I thought I’d save them for a rainy day

But the clouds are in my mind once again

So long, my friend

We fought on the same side of the line

But the fight and the years were never kind

And we’ll never be that green or blue again

So long, my friend

Chasing dreams down the hall

Oh it’s a strange life after all

Maybe you’ll get one

Before it’s done

The sky is filled with UFOs and stars

I hope that you can see ’em where you are

And if you think about me now and then

So long, my friend

Chasing dreams down the hall

Oh it’s a strange life after all

Maybe you’ll get one

Before it’s done

Shoulda known we’d go our separate ways

But I hope the road is treating you okay

When you get back home, or until then

So long, my friend

And if you think about me now and then

So long, my friend

Margo Price Since You Put Me Down

Since you put me down

I’ve been drinking just to drown

I’ve been lying through the cracks in my teeth

I’ve been waltzing with my sin

He’s an ugly evil twin

He’s a double-crossing, back-stabbing thief

I killed the angel on my shoulder with a fifth of Evan Williams

When I found out you were never coming home

I killed the angel on my shoulder

When you left me for another

I’ve been trying to turn this broken heart to stone

No darling, I won’t speak your name

And I hope that you will do the same

But I hope my voice will haunt you above the ground

If I see your face again don’t consider me a friend

You made me feel like an orphan and act like a clown

I killed the angel on my shoulder with a handle of tequila

So I wouldn’t have to spend my nights alone, all alone

I killed the angel on my shoulder

Since you left me for another

I’ve been trying to turn this broken heart to stone

And all the vampires at the bar

They won’t ever get too far

They’re just sucking all of the good blood out of this town

But I’m an outcast, and I’m a stray

And I plan to stay that way

And even if I fall from my grace I’m gonna land back on the ground

I killed the angel on my shoulder with a bottle of the Bulleit

So I wouldn’t have to hear him bitch and moan, moan, moan

I killed the angel on my shoulder

Since you left me for another

I’ve been trying to turn this broken heart to stone

I’ve been trying to turn this broken heart to stone

Margo Price About To Find Out

Well I’ve had about enough of your two-cent words

And the way you’re running your mouth

No you haven’t got a clue or another thing to do

Except to take another picture of yourself

You’re living high on the hog looking down at us all

You may have come so easy and happened so fast

But the harder they come, they fall

You have many people fooled about your motivation

But I don’t believe your lies

You blow so much smoke it’s bound to make you choke

I see the snakes in both of your eyes

But you wouldn’t know class if it bit you in the ass

And you’re standing much too tall

You may have come so easy and happened so fast

But the harder they come, they fall

Tell me what does your pride taste like honey

Or haven’t you tried it out?

It’s better than the taste of a boot in your face

Without any shadow of a doubt

You better learn where the line is

You missed a lot you’ve gotta learn about

How’s it gonna feel to be put in your place

Well I guess you’re about to find out

Some folks today have got nothing to say

Except to talk about their wealth

But the poor’s still poor and the war’s still war

And everybody wants more for themselves

Like a rich man’s child you never walked a mile

One day you won’t have nothing to sell

You may have come so easy and happened so fast

But the way I see it you fell

Tell me what does your pride taste like honey

Or haven’t you tried it out?

It’s better than the taste of a boot in your face

Without any shadow of a doubt

You better learn where the line is

You missed a lot you’ve gotta learn about

How’s it gonna feel to be put in your place

Well I guess you’re about to find out

I said how’s it gonna feel to be put in your place

Well I guess you’re about to find out

Margo Price Tennessee Song

Let’s go back to Tennessee

You and me

Let’s go back to Tennessee

Let’s go back

Get off your chest what’s on your mind

Pull the cork and pour the wine

Spill the beans, break the bread

The way you sing could wake the dead

I’ve been thinking about the road

Saddle up and let it roll

I don’t know what suits you best

Sixty-five or Forty West

Without a doubt I may be wrong

But I’ve got a feeling going strong

In this world we won’t be long

The future ain’t what it used to be

Let’s go back to Tennessee

Mountain high and valley low

Let’s build down where the waters flow

Dig a well, pump the crank

Catch our dinner from the river bank

City life’s a poison pill

Take me down where the wind is still

Take your time, baby, don’t take long

Play another southern song

In this world we won’t be long

Let’s go back to Tennessee

You and me

Let’s go back to Tennessee

Let’s go back

Way back when the land was free

By nature and sovreignity

Lakota lived here long ago

Living off the buffalo

Seasons go, seasons come

Who we are and where we’re from

The truth is clear to those who know

As above, so below

Take your time but don’t take long

I’ve got a feeling going strong

In this world we won’t be long

Let’s go back to Tennessee

You and me

Let’s go back to Tennessee

Let’s go back

Let’s go back to Tennessee

You and me

Let’s go back to Tennessee

Let’s go back

Let’s go back

Margo Price A Little Pain

I’m so tired but I can’t sleep

Too many obligations I’m trying to keep

Gotta please everybody except for myself

But like Levon said, “Ain’t in it for my health”

Everybody thinks it’s all work and no fun

But a little pain never hurt anyone

A little pain never hurt anyone

When I come I home, I’ve gotta leave

My reality is only make-believe

Someone said it’s one or the other

But I’m breaking my back and working like a mother

Who’s to say just how it’s done?

And a little pain never hurt anyone

A little pain never hurt anyone

A little pain never hurt anyone

Baby, slow down, better hurry up quick

I feel so good that it’s making me sick

And I didn’t mean to call your phone

I said, I like you the best when I’m all alone

It’s been real but I gotta run

And a little pain never hurt anyone

A little pain never hurt anyone

A little pain never hurt anyone

A little pain, a little pain never hurt anyone

Margo Price Paper Cowboy

Well you’re nothing but a paper cowboy

Made out of glue and old news

And all your bravado and your drug-dealing ways

That only gives us the blues

Well you’re nothing but a paper cowboy

Made out of glue and old news

And all your bravado and your drug-dealing ways

Well that only gives us the blues

You’re always out talking a good game

With your cronies, your clowns, and your dogs

All of the things that you say you’ll do

Well a million-to-one says you won’t

So lay down your guns

They were never loaded anyhow

With your high-dollar boots

And your trash-talking mouth

This town has no use for you now

When everyone gets on to your tricks

Where in the hell are you gonna go?

Can’t say that you’ve got nothing to prove

Baby, when you’ve got nothing show

Because you’re nothing but a paper cowboy

So fade away like a good cowboy should

With your pony, the reigns, hell on the plains

And you can tell them you was misunderstood

So lay down your guns

They were never loaded anyhow

With your high-dollar boots

And your trash-talking mouth

Oh this town has no use for you now

Said this town has no use for you now
