The country station plays the blues
Of a Motel 6 and borrowed shoes
And three chords that think they know the truth
That you don't want to hear on this day
Even though you knew it anyway
Like biting down on a broken tooth

I must have lost my mind
Why it took me so much time
To leave your sorry ass behind

Mustard blooming by the roadside
Sweet and sharp as saying goodbye
Rank and bitter as a bottle of turned wine
And I am broken by the blue sky and your eyes
And all the ways that you can lie
And all the times I believed we'd be fine

I must have lost my mind
Why it took me so much time
To leave your sorry ass behind

The sound track of highway driving
A 4/4 beat and lonesome crying
Taking my broken bones out of the south
And if I can know anything for sure
You're not the man I thought you were
Whispered words straight from the devil's mouth

I must have lost my mind
Why it took me so much time
To leave your sorry ass behind

The dogwoods have turned to maples
A torn heart mended with staples
A battered mind running on diesel fumes
And the slide guitar is holding all the parts
Of my softly beating bloody heart
But the three part harmony's out of tune

I must have lost my mind
Why it took me so much time
To leave your sorry ass behind
