Lyrics

Discarded an ace / In pursuit of a straight / Ah well / Guess that you can’t win ‘em all / But I just couldn’t let / myself get any deeper in debt / Now I’m keeping my back to the wall / Oh, the road to redemption / Is paved with the best intentions / You may walk in the way of a few good men / Yeah, the road to redemption / Is paved with the greatest intentions / And though we rise in the morning / At night we fall / The attorney was late / So I had to translate / Didn’t seem to make a grain of sense / Every page that I read her / Was full of dead letters / She said, I see what you mean / not what you meant / Oh, the road to redemption / Is paved with the best intentions / You may walk in the way of a few good men / Yeah, the road to redemption / Is paved with the greatest intentions / And though we rise in the morning / At night we fall / A friend is always a friend / A brother until the end / But the way of a fool seems right / in his own eyes / Yeah, I should have kept walking / That was just the tequila talking / ‘stead of hanging around / cutting you down to size / Oh, the road to redemption / Is paved with the best intentions / You may walk in the way of a few good men / Yeah, the road to redemption / Is paved with the greatest intentions / And though we rise in the morning / At night we fall / though we rise in the morning / At night we fall / though we rise in the morning / At night we fall
