No More To Pay (Country)

I’m not much for sore eyes seeing
It’s a wonder I’m alive
Thank God for my family
I’m a hero in their eyes
But I know I’m no good to them
No good to anyone this way

Hitched a free ride on a fast train
But soon I’ll have to pay

(Chorus)
And I will pay for all my drinkin’
All my foolin’ round
I will pay for all my fightin’
Cuttin’ up and getting’ down
And I’ll pay for every night
That I stayed away

Yeah, Guilt and pride will take it
Till I have no more to pay


Not much of a husband
Got a wife that’s good as gold
Teaching me to be a father
So I’ll be loved when I get old
But I keep running out to nowhere
Demons chasing all the way

I don’t want to be that man
But it’s too late and I have to pay

(Chorus)
And I will pay for all my drinkin’
All my foolin’ round
I will pay for all my fightin’
Cuttin’ up and getting’ down
And I’ll pay for every night
That I stayed away

Yeah, Guilt and pride will take it
Till I have no more to pay


Yeah, Guilt and pride will take it
Till I have no more to pay


Think Johnny Cash style guitars and singing. C4C!

I like this, too. It's got an old-school country flair to it, not quite Johnny Cash, but something else, like Merle Haggard-style doominess to it that keeps it trudging along - it's very good.

the only problem i found that could use slight improvement is this first stanza. the first two lines dont really flow with the rest of it.

Other than that it was a wonderful piece and had a nice feel to it.
