Lyrics

What would you do?

Written By: Rory

Sun shine through my window, guitar upon my knee. All I need is you, and I thought all you needed was me. Coffee rots my insides as I curse into the sky. Waiting by the phone, and you’re out with some other guy.

Chorus: If you were me - What would you do?

Bought myself a beat up car, and drove on out west. Didn’t know exactly why, but I knew it was for the best. I stopped by the side of the road and played some more guitar. This guy walked up to me, he was as old as the moon is far.

Chorus: If you were me - What would you do?

He said, “What’s the matter son? You look about as sad as they come, and I’ve seen everyone so I know what I mean.� I told him my story and I played my guitar, but he was more interested in the year of my car. He said, “Pull yourself together man, you got it all wrong. Those are some happy chords, but it ain’t no fuckin’ happy song.�

Chorus: If you were me - What would you do?

Solo.

Chorus: If you were me - What would you do?

He said, “Don’t be a little bitch, crying by the side of the road. Jump back in the ring to scratch that itch, and tell that bitch where to go. I’ve lived to long to listen to this shit,� he told me one more time.
“You gotta roll with the punches and take a hit, and you’ll be just fine.
