 Sad Man's Tongue

As I remember, I wrote it about this guy who is a drifter. He is kind of his own spirit, traveling around the world. He’s a pretty lonely guy who kind of goes by his own rules. He’s a rebel. Until they want to get him into the military, and he’s trying everything he possibly can to just stay as a free spirit on the road, because he goes against the weapons and everything. He just wants to have a simple life, and he doesn’t see any kind of responsibility going into Uncle Sam, and doing work for him. He refuses to bear weapons, because nobody has done anything harmful to him, so why should he be a bad guy to anybody else but himself? So he pretty much tried to live the free life.


-Michael Poulsen
Well my mama told me, "Son you better watch out
All those nasty people gonna rip you dime for dime"

But I got my pocket full of real tales, and a broken guitar mode, guitar mode
And the story keep on rollin' out from a sad man's tongue

Left my mama and papa's nest
I got the rebel fever rambling my bones
Papa said, "My boy, take your Johnny Cash vinyls and go."

Well I got my pocket full of real tales, and a broken guitar mode, guitar mode
And the story keep on rollin' out from a sad man's tongue

Strollin' down the highway with Uncle Sam roaring, "Rebel kid get your ass home
Your ass belongs to me
Leave your Johnny Cash songs and get home."

But I got my pocket full of real tales, and a broken guitar mode, guitar mode
And the story keep on rollin' out from a sad man's tongue

Singing in the cell 1.40.9.5
No way should I wear guns, I'm sitting my time

Left 1.40.9.5 with plenty rock'n'roll songs painting the road
Education sucks, so I sing my song for you

And I got my pocket full of real tales
And a broken guitar mode, guitar mode
And the story keep on rollin' out from a sad man's tongue
