Iron Lyrics

IRON Lyrics by
Well it's iron that he hangs

He loves his work
He drives hours each day

He's never been hurt

Got a back of steel

Got burns on the sleeves of his shirt

He drinks too much when stuff gets heavy

He can't think straight his mind gets hazy

He stops at a sports bar and everybody knows he's a flirt

So he's driving to work

With his head split open

From last nights drinking and last nights smoking

And he never got home

And now there will be hell to pay

'Cause she'll be yelling and he'll be screaming

And the kids will be crying

Like a house full of demons

Says to himself, "Why do people live this way?'

She says to Lou Ann, "He's the father of my babies

I know you think I'm wrong, I know you think I'm crazy

Sticking around while he's drunk all over town

But you don't see he can be so sweet

He only gets mean when he gets in his drink

He's good to the kids

It's just sometimes he gets down"

Iron drops bad

You know it just seems to fit

He gets busted on his wells

He wants to just quit

He wants to curl up tight on a cold white ground and cry

But he works full shift

Picks up a six
It's almost Christmas

The roads are getting slick

She's gonna be at the door

Gonna be hell of a fight

So he's an hour out of Lincoln

No shoulder on the road

Its dark and its snowing

He oughtta go slow

But he pushes it forward

Planes and slides like a sled

The tires hit the edge

He spins at the top

The truck slides low in the ditch till it stops

It hurts where he banged his head

So he sits in the cab

He can't read the gauges

The wipers whip like wind over pagers

It's loud

There's static on the radio

It gets too light to see

He just stares
It gets too light to see

And then he gets scared

Then the light was gone

Just wipers, wind turned snow

Well she says to Lou Ann, "He's the father of my babies

I know you think I'm wrong, I know you think I'm crazy

Sticking around when he's drunk all over town

But you don't see, he can be so sweet

He only gets mean when he gets in his drink

He's good to the kids

Its just sometimes he gets down"

So he pulls back on

He drives real slow

Throws the last of the six out the window in the snow

Something's changed

Saw light, he should have seen dark

That's the last time he drank

Still a hell of a fight

She knew he wasn't lying when he told her about the light

She knew he wasn't lying about the light

(Girl)

"It's iron that he hangs

He loves his work

Drives hours each day

He's never been hurt

Got a back of steel

Got burns on the sleeves of his shirt"
