Living For A Song Lyrics

by Jamey Johnson

Verse 1:
I have slept on satin sheets
Dined with kings on wine so sweet
Made my bed out in the street
Living for a song

I spent a lifetime on the road
Like desperadoes chasing gold
Ive been bought and Ive been sold
Living for a song

Chorus:
Lifes so full of melodies
With words that rhyme and harmonies
Till I write mine Ill always be
Living for a song

Spoken:
I came to town a long time ago
And its really been good to me as you all know
But all of us rhyme runners and word hunters
Have some things that weve been through
So I wrote this song hoping I could tell some of em to you.

Verse 2:
I have slept on lifes highway
Muddy tears staining my face
A rhyme or two was a big payday
Living for a song

Using words from my life line
Forsaking all just for a rhyme
Building steps I know I cant climb
Living for a song

Chorus:
Lifes so full of melodies
With words that rhyme and harmonies
Till I write mine Ill always be
Living for a song

Tag:
Till I write mine, Ill always be
Living for a song
