Artist/Band: Old 97s
Lyrics for Song: Drowning in the Days
Lyrics for Album: Hitchhike to Rhome [1994]



(Hitchhike to Rhome lyrics. Minor variations

found on The Old 97's cassette)



I've been reading books when no one's looking,

I've been listening to the sirens in the night.

Robert says I'm going straight to hell yeah,

If I hang around here I just might.



And I'd like to take some medicine,

I'd like to drink some wine,

I'd like to wake up numb like all my friends.



There's a road to where I came from,

It gets longer all the time,

There's a road to where I'm going it never ends.

And my moon - it always it always wanes,

And my guitar always plays...



(Chorus)

Drowning in the days, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh

Drowning in the days, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh

Drowning in the days, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh

Drowning in the days, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh



I've been writing fairy tales and postcards,

Writing down the story of my life.

Cari says I make everything so hard,

Cari says I'm difficult - she's right.



And I'd like to take some medicine,

I'd like to take you home,

I'd like to get that woman off my mind.



Well I like your pouty lips,

I like your pretty little bones,

But I'm sleeping with the porcelain tonight.



And my cloud - it always rains,

Ken's feedback always fades...



(Repeat Chorus)
