Good Time Blues (an Outlaw's Lament)

This song is by Hurray for the Riff Raff and appears on the album Small Town Heroes (2014).

I been hanging by a thread
I been losing what I had
Now I'm starting to believe
That the good times are done for me

Don't let the Sun catch you crying
Well, there ain't no use denying
That it's all coming down
You could move to another town

But there's a girl in South Louisiana
And she is always on my mind
And if you could only tell her
Oh, that I been doing time
Been doing time

As above, so below
I don't know how I'm gonna go
But with angels by my side
I'm gonna get on my horse and ride

Oh babe, I'm going now
Babe, I'll get back somehow
Babe, I'm going now
Babe, I'll get back somehow
