ain't crying
I've been this way for a long, long time, wow, wow ...

Sweet bonnie brown, looking like a baby
Coming down all over me
She looked real good,
found a ship and that I live in town
Before we share that cigarette, in waves of love, we'll drown down by the sea,
My long-limbed salt-teared summer girl
with all of my heart
Tomorrow we might have been married
But liquor has kept us apart

(chorus)

Seven long years I've been married
Wish I was single
I've been in and out of every honky tonk in town
And I'm almost drunk from the drinks
That I've turned down
Well, you told me you'd be happy
I've been in and out of every honky tonk in town
And I'm almost drunk from the drinks
That I've turned down
Well, you told me you'd be happy
Bouncin'
When we were introduced by your girl Ruth 
I knew that you got down 
Skin caramel complexion 
Lips chocolate brown 
I'm wondering now 
Would you
of the year
When leaves turn to golden brown
But soon fall is ending and winter is near
And the leaves start tumblin' down

Why must the moments go by in such
By now she's putting on her makeup
Bet she's been crying all night long
By now her heart is surely breaking
Just like this cold gray Georgia dawn
wah, damn 

I cram to understand the plan ma'am 

I mean I've been hitting the books for a long time now 

Real long time now, look at the furrowed
passion won't survive 
But something says nawh deep down deep down inside 

It's been so long since I have got you lady 
Since I have had yo brown legs
Here I'll go again
A sweet I sleep
Sweeter I dream

I've been looking
I've been staring down
I've been searching
I've been staring down
And your love is
since you have been gone
No letter today all the days are so long oh why don't you write I know I was wrong
Just give me one chance please won't you
His mercy I've been spared
Not by works
But by faith in Him who called
For so long I've been hindered
For so long I've been stalled.
can't complain
It pays the rent but that's about all that it pays

It's been too long
Hey, I'm goin', I'm goin'
I'm overdue so throw it on the card
by, sleeping by myself

I've been alone so long,
Got to change, got to change
My ways
I've been alone so long,
Got to change, got to change
My
gave me the last laugh
Watching you tear out your hair is gonna be the best part

Oh, I've been shaken down by a spiteful child
I've slapped
My name is Billy Austin
I'm Twenty-Nine years old
I was born in Oklahoma
Quarter Cherokee I'm told
Don't remember Oklahoma
Been so long since I
I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm drowning
Drowning in the sea of love

I've been out here so very long
I
I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm drowning
Drowning in the sea of love

I've been out here so very long
I
anything
I feel like I've been run over by a truck
I don't care much about anything
So give me a ring
And tell me to wake up and do anything

I used
passion won't survive 
But something says nawh deep down deep down inside 

It's been so long since I have got you lady 
Since I have had yo brown legs
My name is Billy Austin
I'm Twenty-Nine years old
I was born in Oklahoma
Quarter Cherokee I'm told

Don't remember Oklahoma
Been so long since
all i know

so sorry baby
that i've got to go
so sorry baby
that i've got to go
by this time tomorrow i'll be a long ways down the road
Virginia pines
I've got to make it home somehow
Before I lose my mind

So won't you carry me back to California
I've been on the road too long
Take me
works,
But by faith in Him who called,
For so long I've been hindered,
For so long I've been stalled.

I've been saved
By the blood of the lamb,
