lyrics

My baby told me
said just go with the flow
but she don’t see that waterfall
and never had to row

said why can’t you be happy
you’ll be dead before you listen
well babe it aint that easy
for a yellow-bellied chicken

Good old fashioned
American lies
my lady knows
I tell them all the time

what a genius
always makes corrections
that send him off a runnin
the opposite direction


now her eyes have faded
not so innocent no more
but I wouldn’t know myself
I can’t look off the floor

hung up my rubber soles
between two telephone poles
she knows where to find me
no I aint coming home


Good old fashioned
American lies
I saw them every time
I stared into her eyes

two oval mirrors
set back in fine complexion
all that I was seeing
had just been my reflection




made my life a battle
and I was old Ulysses
the general Lee inside of me
his rifle never misses

he patiently awaits
for any sign weakness
a flaw in the defenses
or hint of confidence

Good old fashioned
American lies
ill tell em to the mountains
or under any skies

sometimes I believe em
sometimes I think theyre funny
sometimes I’m the only one
who doesn’t see em coming

beaten passed submission
supplies are long since low
surrender is the battle plan
only choice I know

a fight that I had started
by a passion and some pride
no glorious end for me
a prisoner’s demise


Good old fashioned
American lies
I saw them every time
I stared into her eyes

two oval mirrors
set back in fine complexion
all that I was seeing
had just been my reflection
