this is how i live lyrics – sam roberts

i met a girl on a farm
we started carrying on
late at night
she said honey
“won’t you stay?”
and i said
“baby that just ain’t the way i live!”

i had this girl in the south
she said “you got a big mouth”
and that ain’t right
well i’m no saint
but i ain’t bad
i’m too busy baby
just loving the life i have!
oh yeah!

and i’d stay but i gotta move on
i ride the wind and i’m gone

oh
i’m ready to go!
i got nineteen women
on my mind
i got six lives left
’cause i’ve already died three times
but i’m fine

i heard the knock at the door
it was a quarter to four
i heard
“fie fye fo, fo fo fum
i’m young, dumb and ready to come
alive!”
my my!

and i’d stay but i gotta move on
i ride the wind and i’m gone
i ride the wind and i’m gone
i…
this is how i live
this is how i live!
i…
i got nothing to give
i got noting to give!

i took a seat at the bar
you know it wouldn’t be far
some people came
and then they went
but i ain’t leaving till my money is spent
oh no!
oh no!

and i’d stay but i gotta move on
i ride the wind and i’m gone (x2)
and i’d stay but i gotta move on
i ride the wind and i’m gone (x2)
oh yeah yeah yeah
i ride the wind and i’m gone
i ride the wind and i’m gone
