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 hangin' by a thread
I been losin' what I had
Now I'm startin' to believe
That the good times are done for me

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Don't let the sun catch you cryin'
Well there ain't no use tonight
That it's all coming down
You could move to another town

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

But there's a girl in south Louisiana
And she is always on my mind
And if you could only tell her
Well that I'm doing time
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, oh
Oh, oh

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