The New Matchbox Blues


Sometimes I think I should just stand up cold and go Sometimes I think I should just stand up cold and go All you'll hear is the slammin of the door I tell you I love you You say you don't care I tell you I love you You say "I don't care" I'm restin uneasy in my easy chair The old man asked me, Can a matchbox hold your clothes? The blind man asked me, Can a matchbox hold your clothes? I scratched my head and said Old man I don't know But I thought about it for about ten years or so How could a matchbox hold my clothes I thought about it for about ten years or so How could a matchbox hold everything I own Everything I own in this matchbox Well if you leave right now with nothin and where you're goin nobody knows If you leave right now with nothin and where you're goin nobody knows Then a matchbox will hold your clothes "You gotta whole lotta matches, gotta long long way to go" Sometimes I think I should just stand up cold and go Sometimes I think I should just stand up cold and go You're watchin your TV mamma you will never know You won't even hear the closin of the door
