Living on the Sand

This song is by Colter Wall and appears on the album Imaginary Appalachia (2015).

Leave them lights as they are and keep your clothes on
I've had more than my fill
Of whiskey and women and good-hearted villains
But there's a wickedness in me still

Keep that gun locked away, locked away boy
Well, you know you're an angry young man
Going in town with six rounds you're sure to be hell bound
That house you've got is built on the sand

I've been living on the sand
Don't take much to guide my hand
Far from promised land, on the sand

Don't look twice, look twice at that bottle
You'll claim that Jesus turned the water to wine
You'll be wishing that wine you were drinking was water
When you're jumping the bridge in the night

Forgive me, forgive me don't it sound more clear
When I'm screaming day after day
I've lost all my patience, I'm wasted on waiting on
Making my next mistake

I've been living on the sand
Don't take much to guide my hand
Far from promised land, on the sand

I've been living on the sand
Don't take much to guide my hand
Far from promise land, on the sand
