Lyrics

Strikes & Gutters

C
I woke up this morning
C
Feeling strikes and gutters
F
Like I’ve been told
G
And I know I’ve had hard one
C
When I start quoting Rex Moroux

C
It’s a hard life
C
But it’s my life
F
And it’s the only one I know
G
Last night I made love to a woman
C
I ain’t never seen before

C
My bedroom tells a story
C
Of a long and lonely night
F
So I read on
G
The white residue empty bottles too
C
Tell me all I need to know

G
It’s so hard to stay away
F C
When a lonely night turns to colder days
G
A bitter man don’t seem to have no say
C
Strikes & gutters pave the way

C
I did my best not to hurt her
C
And I told her that I must
F
Be getting on
G
She moved quick like lightening
G
And with one blink
C
She was off and gone

C
I guess she knows the rules
C
She know the game
C
She knows how it goes
F
When your alone

G
Why can’t I settle down
G
And meet somebody
G
That don’t make my heart
C
Feel like stone.

G
It’s so hard to stay away
F C
When a lonely night turns to colder days
G
A bitter man don’t seem to have no say
C
Strikes & gutters pave the way

G
It’s so hard to make a change
F C
When all I done was live this way
G
A bitter man don’t seem to have no shame
C
When strikes and gutters pave the way
