LYRICS:

Well I'm livin' with the mistakes I've made,
- ‘plenty more where I'm from',
I’m robbin' peter so Paul gets paid,
- 'plenty more where I'm from.'
I’ve strayed so far from the open road,
I've been places my shadow refused to go.

I went to school but they called me slow,
- ‘plenty more where I'm from',
They couldn't teach me what I needed to know,
- ‘plenty more where I'm from',
My heart still breaks & my throat it swells,
Like a dirty lump o' coal at the New Year bell's.

A song of hope to lift my spirits if you please,
Or a tale of old rebellion if you dare,
I hope I live to see the day I laugh at days like these,
And walk the walk of one without a care.

I'll shift my share but I won't shift the blame,
- ‘plenty more where I'm from',
I respect my neighbour and expect the same,
- ‘plenty more where I'm from',
I’ve strayed so far from the open road,
I've been places my shadow refused to go.

I don't trust what I can't see,
- ‘plenty more where I'm from',
But I believe in something higher than me,
- ‘plenty more where I'm from',
My heart still breaks & my throat it swells,
Like a dirty lump o' coal at the New Year bell's.
