Drayton Farley – Norfolk Blues Lyrics

Norfolk Blues Lyrics – Drayton Farley

The days are all long and the years they’re short
Homes down South I’m stuck up North
Working on a living for the family
Wishing I could give them all a fantasy
The times are all tough and the works real hard
I’ve been pulling doubles in the Norfolk yard
Trying to find a way away from it all
Waiting for the day the curtain may fall

It’s all the way it’s always been
Work all day until the days all spent
Can’t afford to break so you always bend
It’s all the way it’s always been
It’s back and forth and back again
It’s all the way it’s always been

They say the futures looking bleak well so am I
Try to catch a little sleep in the middle of the night
Catch a little glimpse of the good old days
Wondering why I ever let them slip away
Money ain’t much for a beat up heart
I’ve been pulling hair out in the Norfolk yard
Under the gun and I’m over it all
Waiting for the day I’ll get a better call

It’s all the way it’s always been
Work all day until the days all spent
Can’t afford to break so you always bend
It’s all the way it’s always been
It’s back and forth and back again
It’s all the way it’s always been

The days are all long and the years they’re short
Homes down South I’m stuck up North
Working on a living for the family
Wishing I could give them all a fantasy

It’s all the way it’s always been
Work all day until the days all spent
Can’t afford to break so you always bend
It’s all the way it’s always been

It’s all the way it’s always been
It’s all the way it’s always been
It’s all the way it’s always been
It’s all the way it’s always been
It’s all the way it’s always been
It’s all the way it’s always been
It’s all the way it’s always been
