And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, "Well, how did I get here?
Well, how did I get here?"

Letting my days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting my days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"
And you may ask yourself, "Where is that large automobile?"
And you may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful house"
And you may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful wife
And not my beautiful wife"

Letting my days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting my days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

The same as it ever was
The same as it ever was
The same as it ever was

And you may ask yourself, "What is that beautiful house?"
And you may ask yourself, "Where does that highway go?"
And you may ask yourself, "Am I right or am I wrong?"
And you may say to yourself, "Oh my God, what have I done?
What have I done?"

Letting my days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting my days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime
