Worked the bars and sideshows along the twilight zone
Only a crowd can make you feel so alone
And it really hit home

Booze and pills and powders, you've got to choose your medicine
Well it's another goodbye to another good friend

(Well) After all is said and done
I've got to move (while) it's still (I've had my) fun
Well let me (us) (I'm going to) walk before they make me (us) run

Watch my taillights fading, there ain't a dry eye in the house
They're laughing and singing
Well they're dancing and drinking as I left town

I'm going to find my way to heaven 'cause I did my time in hell, oh yeah
I wasn't looking too good but I was feeling real well

Well after all is said and done
I didn't hide, had my fun
And I will walk before they make me run

So if it's all been said and done
I've got to move, I had my fun
Well let me walk before they make me run

I want to walk before they make me run

Before they make me run
