Train - Son of a Prison Guard Lyrics

Son of a Prison Guard

[Verse 1]
There was a mountain on the table of bills that needed pay
Dishes in the kitchen sink, like dreams that never fade
A wild imagination, convicts in the yard
Never enough time to make ends meet
So they put it on a credit card, don't we all?

[Verse 2]
You may not know just where you came from but once upon a time
There was a carpenter, a bartender, a broken fishing line
Just south of royalty in the town that I came from
There were architects and astronauts
But the only one she loved was a prison guard

[Refrain]
And that's the only time I ever saw true love

[Chorus 1]
America's a girl I liked in Georgia
London kept me warm up in Eugene
I guess my mother bless her heart
Set the bar too high to start
Cause finding love for me is just too hard
For a son of a prison guard

[Verse 3]
There's a gate that needed painting, clothes that needed clean
They'd say there's time enough for that when the fun has all been seen
Cause when we're laying on our death bed, a promise we won't say
Wish we would have worked more, baby
Instead of loving you that way, no way

[Refrain]

[Chorus 2]
Sigourney is a girl I met in Brooklyn
Paris got me close in New Orleans
I guess my mother bless her heart
Set the bar too high to start
Cause finding love for me is just too hard
For a son of a prison guard

[Bridge]
I go wherever you are, whoever you are
I go wherever you are, whoever you are
I go wherever you are, whoever you are
I go wherever you are

[Chorus 3]
Betty is a girl I knew in Charlotte
Jordan left for Sydney yesterday
I guess my mother bless her heart
Set the bar too high to start
Cause finding love for me is just too hard
For a son of a prison guard
