lyrics

The Toast

Old man on the balcony - As good as gone
“How’d you get that scar?”
He said, “Which one?”

“I gaze upon these gallows - Where my
Heroes used to hang
I’m no angel - And boy
You ain’t no saint
Just one last drink”

A toast to your life - A toast to my demise
A toast just for a toast -
May you be better - Than I was

Take these old work boots
And where them one day
Only then you’ll know - Young gun
My whole short story

“Old man where you goin’?”
“Over the railin,’”
“All I know is gone, but wait-
Just one last drink”

A toast to your life - A toast to my demise
A toast just for a toast -
May you be better - Than I was
A toast to you and your advice
May we sip this sweet whiskey
Your words - I will carry on.
