lifeblood: songs: lyrics: johnny sue


hey johnny sue
i said i love you
so does the whole damn town

well i've tried to stand out
but all i do is fail
over and over again

now it don't hurt so bad
i'm just a little sad

at least i got good taste
and i know i'm in the race
even if i come in last

hey johnny sue
i said i believe in you
why don't you believe in yourself

enough to say i do
enough to feel blue
enough to feel for anyone else

now it don't hurt so bad
to be a little sad

at least have the grace
to join in the race
even if you come in last

now hey johnny sue
i said i hear you're through
living in this one horse town

now for awhile i did believe
that you would never leave
but i know it's us that let you down

now it's hurting me so bad
to see you feeling sad

now there's no account for taste
in a one horse race
when everybody comes in last
