I was hiding from the sun once again
I was running from time, my friend
I've lost another war
So, I poured one more and went home drunk again

And she was up when the key hit the lock
And the clock looked at me just like the Devil in disguise
I saw it in her eyes
She'd be gone before the evenin'

So, I poured another strong one
And chopped a line from here to Texas
'Cause I've lost another good one
She's on the midnight train to Memphis

With a brand new start, I swore I'd love from the heart
I meant to change my ways
But I've seen better days
Than the one's that's here this mornin'

With a wife and kids at home
With a job somewhere on some assembly line
I wish I had that life
I bet you wish you had mine

So, let's pour another tall one
And chop a line from here to Texas
'Cause I've lost another good one
She's on the midnight train to Memphis

Dude, what station is this? K snooze?
Kid Rock, thought he was the American bad ass
He's putting me to sleep
Nudge me if he gets over five decibels
I knew his first album was a good one

But that's the way I am
And this is how I jam
All across the land from Alabam to bandstand
Doped up rebel with an attitude shit

So fuck a bitch
Fuck a bitch
Fuck a bitch

I won't switch, won't quit my vices
Flip the script 'cause I'm gonna slice the righteous
Haven't you heard, I don't refrain
Free as a bird and so I won't change

Livin' it up, givin' it up, fuckin' shit up, what!
I'm gonna run my track from the D to Nantucket
So fuck it, if you don't dig that, you can suck it

And it don't

With an old suitcase, I swear I'll leave this place
I'll get you back in time
Can't drink you off my mind
So, I'll see you when I'm sober

I been looking for some reasons
But I ain't found one down in Texas
I been changing with the seasons
Walked in a new line back to Memphis
