lyrics

Written by Stephen McCarthy

Packed my bags, packed it in
Never coming back her again
Paid my dues and stayed in line
16 years of serving my time
Now what I did I do regret
All the days that I had wept
Up all night and you can bet
I've got a live with that

See the lights of downtown
It's where I shot that ol' man down
Now he's calling me
Calls my insanity

Now when I walk and people say
How can he just away
Had a gun, no daughter, no son
One life is gone and one begun
Now what I did I do regret
All the days that I had wept
Up all night and you can bet
I've got a live with that

See the lights of downtown
It's where I shot that ol' man down
Now he's calling me
Calls my insanity

I can't run away, I can't hide
Its a slow death, for me inside

See the lights of downtown
It's where I shot that ol' man down
Now he's calling me
Calls my insanity
See the lights of downtown
It's where I shot that ol' man down
Now he's calling me
Calls my insanity
See the lights of downtown
It's where I shot that ol' man down
Now he's calling me
Calls my insanity
See the lights of downtown
It's where I shot that ol' man down
Now he's calling me
Calls my insanity

Their signature songs Looking For Lewis And Clark and I Had A Dream have never left the airwaves. ... more
