Lyrics

Sounlda Woulda Coulda

Written By: Bude Van Dyke

This old man Doc, he found me thinking
deep dark thought and clouds of doom
Pulled up a chair where I sat drinking
Told me "Son I've got some fat to chew"
Chorus
He said Learn from your story and let it go
Just do today what you can do
holding on to shoulda, woulda, coulda
Will suck the life right out of you

at first I wanted to come out swinging
who the hell did he think we was
the street outside ain't bricked in yellow
and this waterin hole ain't the city of OZ (chorus)

But then his words the cut straight through me
he knew my thoughts, the one I never told
something about those words he saying
can only come from a pain grown old (chorus)

So don't throw rocks at open windows
do spend your time on bygone worlds
don't let regrets steal the present moment
you might not find your daily pearls

Shoulda Woulda Coulda
