Lyrics

Baton Rouge

Written By: Nathan Peek

All these graves are dug
and grave diggers to pay,
with no one
to put in the ground today
With all these holes in the roof
with rain seeping through,
somehow you got through too

But you treated me unkind
Baton Rouge
But I guess I treated you
unkind too, Baton Rouge

Somewhere in between
the day and the night,
Somewhere someone's eyes
adjust to the light
And somewhere love astounds
where love is due
Well you don't care,
but I love you

CHORUS

And when you said if I should
come back,
it'll be too soon
Was that a joke?
'Cause baby it ain't cool

CHORUS
