Angry Young Man
Perf. Steve Earle

(Steve Earle/John Porter McMeans)


I've got a lot of memories tied up in this place
So much time spent in so little space
It looked like the world through the eyes of a child
Kind of closes in on you after a while
A place to grow up and a place to grow old
Keep your mouth shut and what you're told
I told moma the day that I ran
This ain't no place for an angry man

Moma if you could see me right now
You'd be so sure you'd failed me somehow
Moma you never could understand
There ain't no peace for an angry young man.

(instrumental)

A cheap hotel a long way from my home
So many people make me feel so low
Dreams die easy out here in these streets
Hearts grow cold in the city heat
I ain't never been the patient kind
I've got to live life in peace or die tryin'
At the filling station with a gun in my hand
It's the only way for an angry young man.

Moma if you could see me right now
You'd be so sure you'd failed me somehow
Moma you never could understand
There ain't no peace for an angry young man

(instrumental)

Got a lot of memories tied up in this place
And I'm just staring them right in the face
A lonely grave on the outskirts of town
Three in the morning, ain't no-one around
Just like a ghost comming out of the night
Oh I'll be gone before the morning light
Mama hope that you understand
This ain't no place for an angry young man

Moma if you could see me right now
You'd be so sure you'd failed me somehow
Moma you never could understand
There ain't no peace for an angry young man.

Moma if you could see me right now
You'd be so sure you'd failed me somehow
Moma you never could understand
There ain't no peace for an angry young man.
