Chorus

I dGon't know a cGave from aC hole in theG ground I Emwandered an aGge through Ca cool and daDrk cage Tried finGding my waGy by touchC, taste, seEmnse, sound But no waGy out of helGl, as the Dsin is on stGage (1st time) But I'm here and I hope I won't see old age (2nd) But I figure the solitude's my only wage (3rd) And long past the point of pretending to rage (Last)

Verse 1

I Emwonder whatEm happened uEmp there to my Gtruck LCeft parked with Ca load, no doubtD long since been toDwed EmI never expectEmed to have suEmch strangGe luck EmI should haveEm obeyed what tAmhat road sign forEmebode

EmCavefish is dEmelicious, buEmt only if coGoked CYou'll mess it Cup bad, welDl let's leave it Dat that EmI've eaten Emwhenever, whatEmever I've hoGoked CI'd kill for Cthe thrill of aD meal with somGe fat

Chorus

Verse 2

I don't know my soul from a hole in the dark I'd wake from my sleep and I'd silently weep I once knew a girl who loved me as a lark My pain, she explains, is what made me so deep I thought I was ever so lonesome at home It needled at me until I couldn't see The forest for trees nor the sea for the foam And I took up the job that was all absentee

Chorus

Verse 3

The miles and also the hours were strained Kept my hands on the wheel, it was solid and real And wind blew and snow fell and storms rumbled and rained And I drove through it all but found I could still feel Inspire me world, I was writing a song Saw a sign for the cave, thought "artistic" and "brave" I grabbed my guitar and I moseyed along and though I hate to state it, I entered my grave

Chorus
