I’d Rather Sleep in a Tent

January 29, 2013

tent


If you’re finished lovin me
Then that’s all you have to say
A loveless bed’s no place for me
So I’ll be on my way

I’d rather sleep in a tent
Among the hopeless and the damned
Than face another nitetime spent
With my heart in the sand

Some folks’ll straggle on for years
With a love that’s dead and dry
I ain’t drinkin my own tears
You’ll need to find another guy

I’d rather sleep in a tent
Among the hopeless and the damned
Than face another nitetime spent
With my heart in the sand

When good lovin turns to bad
Doctors cannot resuscitate
Stand and salute the love we had
When it was good, it was great

I’d rather sleep in a tent
Among the hopeless and the damned
Than face another nitetime spent
With my heart in the sand
