Lyrics

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
If the women don't get ya, the whiskey must

When I rest my eyes, I see all these ghosts
The more I try to push them back, the more they crowd close
All those hurts I’ve caused, all those hurts I’ve known
The worst of all the chances offered and chances blown

I can't let go
I can't let go
I can't let go

Of all the fuckers that have done me wrong
Gonna get 'em back before long
I can't let go
And all the damage that I did my bro
Didn't mean to treat him so
I can't let go
Of all the people I will never be
There he is in front of me
I can't let go
Of all the things I wish I never did
Even back when I was just a kid
I can't let go

When I lost my pa
When that moment come
I lumped those songs with all the rest in my cra-ni-um
I still feel that beat
I still hear those drums
And they done brought it on and on ever closer

I can't let go
Of how he looked when he got so thin
Seemed like I could see through him
I can't let go
Of how I felt when I heard that breath
The second that I first saw death
I can't let go
My poor mama had to close his eyes
Jesus I was paralysed
I can't let go
Of who he was and what he left behind
It's always in the back of my mind
I can't let go

M-I-double S-I-double S-I-P-P-I
M-I-double S-I-double S-I-P-P-I

What's wrong?
What's wrong?

M-I-double S-I-double S-I-P-P-I
M-I-double S-I-double S-I-P-P-I
M-I-double S-I-double S-I-P-P-I
M-I-double S-I-double S-I-P-P-I
