​Laying My Life On The Line

This song is by Jerry Jeff Walker and appears on the album CowJazz (1982).

Layin' my life on the line, that's what I do all the time
Well I find myself each night, facing a white light
Layin' my life on the line

Driving the road here tonight, my thoughts were of Susan and I
Now her love sustained me, the road almost claimed me
They're laying my life out in a line

Traveling is my way of life, and so it gets crazy sometimes
Well it takes me places, where I see the faces
Of people I touched with my lines

Sometimes it all feels so right, sometimes I just feel far from home
Sometimes I wonder, am I just stumbling through here
Have been on this road for too long

But here I am out here tonight, playing the songs that I like
Cause the magic is bringing, each song you're singing
Your whole life's laid out in lines
Well I'm laying my life on the line
