Proud Souls  Jason Boland

♪ Capo 2



I got drunk by myself last night

they say it’s no way to make things right

I just didn’t have anything better to do.

The dog was asleep on the living room rug and

I watched a show about crime and drugs,

punished a bottle of bourbon until it was through.

I don’t care that I can’t sleep

Cause I’d just as soon stay up all week

I might get some things done while others dream.                  

The heater broke and the room got cold  

and my knees and ankles say I’m gettin’ old

the phone finally rang but it wasn’t for me              


If everyone was together      

I guess no one would be alone            

Life’s a lot of trade offs in the end.        

Somewhere in the fields of heather

The proud souls laugh and love together    

somewhere between passion and losing friends                    

Sleep finally came but I woke up alone

my head was next to the telephone    

I gave the sun a cussin’ as I drew the shades.              

One thing that seems always true    

When I’m hung over the sky is blue.  

A rough night for me will make a hell of a day                  

I believe in ghosts and democracy        

and that each man should leave his legacy                

Be that mans work great or be it small.            

I don’t believe in everything like      

the designated hitter or that diamond rings    

will make love last forever for one and all              


Cause if everyone should be together

Why are so many left alone

Life’s a lot of trade offs in the end

Somewhere in the fields of heather

The proud souls laugh and they love together

Somewhere between passion and loosing friends

Somewhere between passion and losing friends
