Left Me In A Hole (Yonder Mountain String Band)

Divorcee goes to the bars A sophisticat pulls up in his car A hopeful youth waits for the first star to come out The sky above can be so mean, the clouds cover what should be seen And there ain't much left to keen in my book Hangin' on to someone else, he tells you that peace sells And you see him like all's well, I ain't jealous Though you used to listen to me, My inner thoughts have made you flee I know you were just tryin' to be what you want to be I let you in to see me for real And you walked right out that's what I feel You said you needed time to be alone And like the youth I looked above Feeling stranded without love The time was wrong, and you left me in a hole You left me in hole (you left me in a hole) You left me in hole The rain it comes, the rain it goes The question is, she friend or foe The story-teller looks to his toes, he's stuck here The dragon's breath is on my neck Which way is home, hold on a sec The bartender put a bottle of beer on the table Many people, they believe that Jesus came here to relieve All the problems that we breathe on each other And I don't care just what you do, Or what you think, that's up to you You see, those thoughts of yours are not new to me at all And is it these thoughts that made you believe That there's nothing here so you shall leave While I sit here with my guitar in my hand A hungry baby starts to cry, an old man's about to die And all I can do is sit back and sigh, what's my problem Ignore the problem, that's the key Said the woman beneath the tree If your eyes are closed, you can't see the sunrise The phone, it rings, who could it be Well, it ain't her, and it's not for me Forgetting's as easy as 1-2-3 my friends say Her face is still all too clear, her leaving me was my biggest fear Something's got to help me steer away from her You have your life, and I have mine, Maybe we'll meet again some other time Down the long road, on another plain You left me in hole (you left me in a hole)...
