Far From the Tree

Far From the Tree

My granddad was a loser
Who loved cheap women and booze
But I know the way he felt
Because I love those things too
I’d trade seven days at home
For just one night in a bar
Where no one wants to save you
And you can be who you are

Chorus:
I’m just another bad apple
Who didn’t fall far from the tree
Baby this ain’t no Garden of Eden
But you can take a bite out of me
I’m just another bad apple
Who didn’t fall far from the tree

My uncle caught a strong wind
And he blew straight out of town
The highway called his name
It was such a pretty sound
He bought me my first bottle
And we drank every last drop
He said once you fall in love
Son it’s mighty hard to stop

Bridge:
Lead me into temptation
Deliver me to evil
For mine is a kingdom
Not of power and glory
But of women and whiskey

Chorus:
I’m just another bad apple
Who didn’t fall far from the tree
Baby this ain’t no Garden of Eden
But you can take a bite out of me
I’m just another bad apple
Who didn’t fall far from the tree
