lyrics

I work hard in the daylight
But I'm done when the sun goes down
Then I can't keep my body
From hittin' the ground

I carry my weight across the tracks
Where they oughta know my name by now

I ain't got a dime
But I got what I need
I guess a little comfort would be nice

Take these idle hands
Let the devil go and make my plans
Cuz' an angel's gonna carry me home tonight

I keep my wheels a-rollin'
And I try to keep my engine clean
But the side of the road keeps on swallowing me

I stagger my way across the tracks
Where they're gonna have just what I need

I drink when I'm dry
And I work when I'm well
I stick to the right side of the road

I left blood on the rails
Broke my bones, got sent off to jail
But an angel's gonna be carryin' me home tonight

Well there ain't no sense in crying
There isn't any sense at all
When you're stuck to your seat
And you're still climbing the walls

My body's no temple, not like this
And it's gonna crumble, brick by brick

I left blood on the tracks
Broke my bones baby, broke my back
But an angel's gonna carry me home tonight
