​Lives Like Mine

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album The Sadness in a Song (1962).

I'm sitting here a thinking but wasting my time
I know that these old blues has got me down
I've never been a winner I've been a good loser
But lives like mine's what make this world go round

But lives like mine must have the destiny
The rest of mine I just don't care to see
Should I be another man with no peace to be found
But lives like mine's what make this world go round

I've tried to earn a fortune I've tried to start a home
But there's no gold and love has left me down
So finally I'm knowing there's no way to make the showing
But lives like mine's what make this world go round

Yes lives like mine must have the destiny
The rest of mine I just don't care to see
Should I be another man with no peace to be found
But lives like mine's what make this world go round
