Too many sweethearts and none of them true 
Done too many things that I shouldn't do
Made lots of money all spent the wrong way
Heading down the wrong highway

Made lots of friends and now they're all gone
Too many memories that still linger on
I had to many drinks, both night and day
Heading down the wrong highway

Too many heartaches and too many tears 
Crowded too much, in just a few years
I want to go right but I've lost my way
Heading down the wrong highway

Lost everything, lost all my friends
God only knows, how this all will end
Drinking and gambling each night and day
Heading down the wrong highway
