Lyrics

Verse 1
Kicked a can down an old dirt road cause you didn’t know where to go
Shiftin' through the dust and the penny rust and the oaks that line the road
You got a baby on the way from a one time lay
Things are adding up with no way to pay
Troubles got you down and grey

Verse 2
Swinging down that hammer in the old rail yard got dirt smeared on your face
It’s early up to rise even earlier to die just another man in the race
Hard times finding you down every grave
6 foot down and you can’t be saved
Troubles got you down and grey

Pre-chorus
Ooooooooooooo Down and Grey
Ooooooooooooo Down and Grey

Chorus
Livin like a ghost cause you’re lost and broke
Can you hear what the poets say
Making deals with the devil you’re a long time rebel
He’s come to collect his pay
Troubles got you down and grey
Troubles got you down and grey

Verse 3
They found him in the mornin’ heard the rooster warning that the man had died that day
Left his cigarette burnin’, had a long time yearnin’ but time had slipped away
They buried him down by the old oak tree,
Said a few words and they all agreed
Troubles got him down and grey x3

Instrumental

Pre-chorus
Ooooooooooooo Down and Grey
Ooooooooooooo Down and Grey

Chorus
Livin' like a ghost cause you’re lost and broke
Can you hear what the poets say
Making deals with the devil you’re a long time rebel
He’s come to collect his pay
Troubles got you down and grey
Troubles got you down and grey
