Lyrics

I’ve done too many drugs
I’ve rolled too many dice
I’d like to say I’m sorry
but that’s one too many lies
goin’ straight is something easy to overdo

I’ve quit too many jobs
I’ve closed too many bars
I’ve done some shady dealing
from behind some big cigars
goin’ straight is something easy to overdo

BRIDGE
I’ve got a nasty habit or two
I couldn’t bear to break ’em clean through
but meet me halfway babe
I’ll wait for you

CHORUS 1
medium straight / it’s all right
medium straight / that’s the state for me
medium straight / it’s all right
that’s the way to be
let’s go medium straight

you can be in better health
live longer till you die
by never goin’ crooked
and by never gettin’ high
but livin’ straight is just so easy to overdo

REPEAT BRIDGE

REPEAT CHORUS 1 + CHORUS 2
medium straight / it’s all right
medium straight / that’s the shape I’m in
medium straight / it’s all right
let’s go medium straight …
