lyrics

Woke up this morning, my head full of trouble & pain
Woke up this morning, my head full of trouble & pain
Lord I never did drink but the hangover feels just the same

Can't stay in this house, Lord, can't climb this long ladder no more
Can't stay in this house, Lord, can't climb this long ladder no more
I get up to the top, there's a window that once was a door

I went into town, Lord, my friends thought that they were on fire
Said I went into town, Lord, my friends all thought they were on fire
Wish I could think of some water, Lord, I never have been a crier

The up is so up, Lord, I just wish the down weren't so down
Said the up is so up, Lord, I just wish the down weren't so down
Can't stay in this house, gotta find me a new way around

Cuz it's a long shakin' ladder, & I never know which way I'm goin'
Said it's a long shakin' ladder, never do know just which way I'm goin'
& I'm scared to look down, Lord, & find I been climbin' it wrong

Woke up this morning, my head full of trouble & pain
Woke up this morning, my head full of trouble & pain
But don't worry your head cuz I soon will be burnin'
Don't know what I'll do til I think that I'm burnin'
Don't worry yourself Lord, I soon will be burnin' again
