lyrics

Been looking for the answer where it's always been
the heavy hanging fruit on the lowest limb
pluck it off and let the juice run down my chin
Looking for the answer where it's always been

Been looking for the answer where it's always been
the bottom of the bottle at a long days end
drink it up until I get a boozy grin
Looking for the answer where it's always been

Cuz I don't know which way is up
Til I knock a couple down

I've been looking for the answer where it's always been
glide into the bedroom with my lady friend
make a mess and let the sheets stay where they land
Looking for the answer where it's always been

But now I know it ain't enough
With all that's going down


What I'm trying to say is the old familiar ways
Got a power that runs so deep
It isn't very wise to close my tired eyes and sleep
The world has gone astray, trying to crucify the babe
that I raised in love to keep
All I wanna do is wallow in the blues
and weep

But I gotta doom the haze of death
with a long defiant breath of peace

So I'll keep looking for the answer where it's always been
the kindness of a stranger and a helping hand
the way I earn my dollar and the way it's spent
Looking for the answer where it's always been

Keep looking for the answer where it's always been
hallelujah hollering and clasping hands
the beauty of the colors and the way they all blend
Looking for the answer where it's always been

Where it's always been
