lyrics

I wish I was a better man wish I was not just what I am
It was true and still is every time
I'm a rolling stone that keeps on rolling a weary heart that keeps on tolling
The rain tastes like ember and the cigarettes are fine

I made a bet with fate, I tried to cheat using my father's hand
Two pair still didn't beat three of a kind
He said poor boy now you’re the cursed you missed out on the promised land
You're goin where the rain tastes like ember and the cigarettes are fine

I was chasing sets of 18 wheels ten thousand miles of cotton fields
I always chase my whiskey with cheap wine
It never means quite anything we drink until we get our fill
Until the rain tastes like ember and the cigarettes are fine

I heard about a man who wandered off into Afghanistan
Well he came back a few years down the line
They asked how he was treated in that heathen middle eastern land
He said the rain tasted like ember and the cigarettes are fine

I found myself south of the south down south of the banana line
I'll write to you a postcard with a lie
I'll tell you in the south the weather's good and I am doin fine
That the rain tastes like ember and the cigarettes are fine

I wish I was a better man wish I was not the thing I am
It was true and still is every time
I'm a rolling stone that keeps on rolling a weary heart that keeps on tolling
The rain tastes like ember and the cigarettes are fine
