Johnny Cash Is Dead And I Still Tell Too Many Lies

We used to sit out by the bar
And listen to "Cry Cry Cry"
I would tell her that I love her
Then I would give it my best try 

But that was a long time ago
Johnny Cash is dead
And I still tell too many lies

Johnny Cash is dead and I still tell too many lies

I wake up in the morning
That old sun screams at me
I wake up in the morning 
The sunlight screaming at me
Smelling like cigarette perfume
And a bath of last night's whiskey 

That woman I sing about is gone
She disappeared right before my eyes
That woman I sing about is a long time gone
She disappeared right before my eyes

God knows I don't think about her anymore
Because Ol' Waylon is dead and I still tell too many lies

Reckon I was born
In a time not my own
Reckon I was born
In a time not my own
Listen to the radio
And WZZK won't play 
One goddamned country song

Maybe I was born
100 years too late
A damn sad joke 
By a simple twist of fate

Running out of reasons
Running out of excuses and alibis
But Old Hank is dead
And I still tell too many lies
