Greencastle Blues

Greencastle Blues

Todd Snider

There was a time when I was handsome
There was a time when I had money to burn
There was a time when where I landed
Was the least of my, the least of my concerns

But it hurts to lean back in these handcuffs
Like nine kinds of shame turned to rage
As a younger man, I might have put up a fight
But I feel like such a fool at my age

Some of this trouble just finds me
No matter where I turn
So how do you know when it's too late
How do you know when it's too late
How do you know when it's too late to learn?

You know the number one symptom of heart disease
The number one symptom of heart disease is sudden death
It's like time stands still forever until
It starts shaking around on you
Shaking around like some crazy old hooker on meth

And you know me, I can't take no preachin'
Not on Sunday, and no other day
But I feel like I oughta be prayin' to something
And I have no idea what to say

Some of this trouble just finds me
Most of this trouble I earned
How do you know when it's too late
How do you know when it's too late
How do you know when it's too late to learn?

I've learned nothing out here on this highway
But I have been passed by and I have
Passed by more than my share of cars
And I do remember my younger days
When I was so certain that driving even faster
Was going to get me far

So there's nothing left for me to learn here
Just this half-full or half-empty cup
Less than ounce of possession, man
I could do that kind of time standing up

Most of this trouble just finds me
No matter where I turn
How do you know when it's too late
How do you know when it's too late
How do you know when it's too late to learn?
