Hard Currency

Hard Currency

Oh Lord won’t you help me
For I have lost my way
The only girl I’ve ever loved
Walked out on me today

Left this house as empty
As the hole in my heart
That I’m filling with whiskey
And The sound of my guitar

Chorus:
And these lonesome sounds I’m making
Are the sounds of my heart breaking
I am a victim of the choices I made
But lately it occurs to me
It’s the bad trades that must be paid
In hard currency

She’s the light of my life
Now my whole world’s gone dark
The love that once burned in her heart
Is now less than a spark

Some neighbors have gathered
In the street by our house
I can see them shudder each time
I call her name out loud

Chorus:
And these lonesome sounds I’m making
Are the sounds of my heart breaking
I am a victim of the choices I made
But lately it occurs to me
It’s the bad trades that must be paid
In hard currency

Bridge:
She tried hard to save me
From my life of vice
Now she’s cashed in her chips
And I’m paying the price

Chorus:
And these lonesome sounds I’m making
Are the sounds of my heart breaking
I am a victim of the choices I made
But lately it occurs to me
It’s the bad trades that must be paid
In hard currency
