beg steal or borrow lyrics – ray lamontagne

“beg steal or borrow”

so your home town’s bringing you down
are you drowning in the small talk
and the chatter

or you gonna step into line like your daddy done
punching the time and climbing life’s long ladder

you’ve been howling at the moon like a slack jaw fool
and breaking every rule they can throw on
but one of these days it’s gonna be right soon
you’ll find your legs and go and stay gone

young man full of big plans and thinking about tomorrow
young man going to make a stand
you beg, steal you borrow
you beg you steal you borrow

well all the friends that you knew in school
they used to be so cool and they just bore you

well look at them now, already pulling the plow
so quick to take to grain like some old news

young man full of big plans and thinking about tomorrow
young man going to make a stand
you beg steal you borrow
you beg you steal you borrow

dreaming of the day
you’re gonna pack your bags
put the miles away
oh, just grab your girl and go
where no one knows you
what will all the old folks say?

so the home town’s bringing you down
are you drowning in the small talk and the chatter?
or you gonna step into line like your daddy done
punching the time and climbing life’s long ladder

young man full of big plans and thinking about tomorrow
young man going to make a stand
you beg, steal you borrow
you beg you steal you borrow
