  • Sometimes I go walking through the long tall grass
    Wonder how long hard times will last
    For this backward soul on a road that god knows where
    As hard as I try ain't left no track
    It's not enough to find my way back
    I hit the ground like broken glass and just lay there

    Singing why me, oh why me
    And I throw another empty bottle up against the wall
    And I say why me, oh why me
    But pitty never ever did me any kinda good at all
    So I walk on

    And I wound up on the capital steps
    Watching the lobbyists smoking cigarettes
    And bury their shoes in the country club blues
    And who got who by the short hairs

    Standing there in their high dollar suits
    Looking down at my tattered old jeans and boots
    And this weathered guitar that seems to follow me everywhere
    God it follows me everywhere

    Playing why me, oh why me
    All I got's another song about how money makes and breaks the law
    And I sing why me, oh why me
    I'm just a broke troubadour with a bark for the underdog
    So I walk on

    Now I ain't Jesus, but I can relate
    To a man looking death square in the face
    Even he hit his knees with a plea in the garden of Gethsemane
    To his holy father he raised his eyes
    In his darkest hours he cried
    Please would you take this cup from me

    Praying why me, oh why me
    Knowing all the while he had to carry that cross and hang there
    When I say why me, oh me
    I know that somewhere up in heaven there's a big old book with my name there
    So I walk on, I rock on
    Even when I'm singing, why me, I rock on
    Even when I'm singing, why me, I rock on
    Even when I'm singing, why me
