Shovels & Rope

"Carry Me Home"

[Verse 1]
I was a selfish young man when I lost my granddaddy
Fell in love to the B-side of "Shootenanny!"
Got more bottles than leaves on my family tree
Late nights, early flights is the life for me

[Pre-Chorus]
You burn by the fire
Or get choked by the smoke
Well, the thunder does the talking
But the lightning does the work

[Chorus]
Oh, carry me home
I'm no good when I'm alone
I'm burned out to the bone
Can't tell I'm crying
'Cause I'm stoned
Dragging my love along a lone road

[Verse 2]
Get your shoes on, get in the car, get the lead out
Get over yourself, get everything you need set out
One hand on the heater, the other flippin' the radio
Full moon fever, full cup of coffee on an open road

[Pre-Chorus 2]
But the sun's coming up
Hits my heart like a drug
But all my wasted efforts
Are piled in a truck

[Chorus]
Oh, carry me home
I'm no good when I'm alone
I'm burned out to the bone
Can't tell I'm crying
'Cause I'm stoned
Dragging my love along a lone road

[Bridge]
Before the same old tricks, fell for the lie, fell from grace
Fell far behind, fell out of time, fell out of place
Falling backwards, fell over, fell off the face of the Earth
Fell in a bucket of luck, arms flailing, free falling face first

[Pre-Chorus 3]
But at night we were free
Near a boat on the sea
I'm looking out for you
Are you looking out on me?

[Chorus]
Oh, carry me home
I'm no good when I'm alone
I'm burned out to the bone
Can't tell I'm crying
'Cause I'm stoned
Dragging my love along a lone road
Lone road
