Lyrics by Clay Rose:

When you sent me packing
Down that Green River Valley
I knew that if you couldn't,
No one would have me

I lost myself drinkin'
With those stray dogs in the alleys
'Til the whiskey soaked my bones

The night, it came on cold
Blowing off that muddy river
I felt so goddamned old
I didn't have the strength to shiver

The moon was swallowed whole
And when the sky spit back that sliver
Well, I knew I had to go it alone

Love is free
So take all you can
Just don't ask me
To be the bigger man
'Cause I'm all spent
It took all I had
Living the good life
Made me bad

Go on, chase that girl
Go on, get that money
Go on, break the world
I know you think it's full of honey
And maybe some day
I'll look back and think it's funny
How you always had to burn it down

But right now, in the ashes
Choking on the smoke
I find it hard to grasp this
Great big cosmic joke
I'm squinting through the tears
And years of lies and hope
But I know you ain't comin' back around

Love is free
So take all you can
Just don't ask me
to be the bigger man
'Cause I'm all spent
You took all I had
Living the good life, Brother
Made you bad

Devil below and God above,
Take all your armies from my blood
Show me what I'm really made of
More than fear?
More than love?
And set me free!
I've done all I can
I won't ask you
To be a better man
'Cause you're all spent
You did what you could
But I guess living the bad life
Just feels too good
