He said he had to stop
He hadn't had a drop of anything  Stronger than coffee 
In ten months, three weeks
And one long day

He pushed away his plate 
Said it's better late than never done
When it comes to getting right
It took a while but I saw the light 

He said some things that cast long shadows 
That I never will out run
And every day I spend living

With ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong 
Grab a chair 'cause the list is long
I can write you a country song
 About the reasons I'll be going home
To a house full of memories  Things I wish I'd done differently 
And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong  Ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong 

He said there's a spot of paint 
And it just ain't the right shade
But it covers up the hole I made
 Where I broke my wrist the night she left
And there's a lot of friends 
That I ain't seen in a lot of years 
But some are still hanging around 
In old pictures I can't take down

He said some things that cast long shadows 
That I never will out run
And every day I do battle 

With ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong 
Grab a chair 'cause the list is long
I can write you a country song
 About the reasons I'll be going home
To a house full of memories  Things I wish I'd done differently 
And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong  Ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong 

I got a heart full of memories  Things I wish I'd done differently 
And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong  Ghosts of all the things I've done wrong 

He said he had to stop
He hadn't had a drop of anything  Stronger than coffee 
In ten months, three weeks
And one long day
