Silver Linin'                 © GregBrooks, GW Morris 2017     

 

It's a lonely autumn morning

On this West Virginia ridge

These clouds just seem to chill me to the bone

Well I wish I knew but I just can't tell

If I'll ever find home

The only thing I know is I'm alone

 

Silver clouds there ain't no linin'

To my pockets I'm alone

Been twenty years of searchin'

For my home

Out of  luck I'm out of money

The good times are all gone

The future ain't no brighter

Than the dawn

 

Reach into my pocket

Thank I'll have a smoke

It's the only comfort now that's left around

I thought I made some progress

When I left my city life

These solitary hours get me down

 

Silver clouds there ain't no linin'

To my pockets I'm alone

Been twenty years of searchin'

For my home

Out of  luck I'm out of money

The good times are all gone

The future ain't brighter

Than the dawn

 

Well maybe if I find some work

To occupy my time

Oh a women who could keep me from the cold

Well the prospects ain't no brighter

And I'm trying to find relief

From this darkness that keeps crawling  on my soul

 

Silver clouds there ain't no linin'

To my pockets I'm alone

Been twenty years of searchin'

For my home

Out of  luck I'm out of money

The good times are all gone

The future ain't no brighter

Than the dawn

 

Silver clouds there ain't no linin'

To my pockets I'm alone
