Cody Jinks – David


(upbeat guitar music) ♪ My friend David was a good kid ♪ ♪ He had my back, always knew he did ♪ ♪ He was different than most ♪ ♪ And maybe I was too ♪ ♪ Hanging out with the in-crowd
just wasn’t our thing ♪ ♪ There was a whole lot more ♪ ♪ Than we could see on these plains ♪ ♪ Well, some people just seem
to get stuck, and hang around ♪ ♪ It’s college or trade school
for those with the means ♪ ♪ There’s never been any small town ♪ ♪ For those in between ♪ ♪ Yeah the poor folks they go
to work, or they go to war ♪ ♪ And I did 1500 days in the corps ♪ ♪ And I got back, nothin’
looked the same anymore ♪ ♪ I got on with the local
police, it just seemed to fit ♪ ♪ Things have changed ♪ (upbeat guitar music) ♪ By then David had a daughter and a son ♪ ♪ And a rap sheet to prove
all the time that he’d done ♪ ♪ He was just a burned out beat
down shell of my old friend ♪ ♪ And on a three day binge he
was speedin’ through town ♪ ♪ And I bumped the wailers
just to try and slow him down ♪ ♪ He didn’t know that it
was me, and he took off ♪ ♪ Oh how things change ♪ ♪ And I found his truck in
the floodplain upside down ♪ ♪ It was a hell of a rain I
don’t know if he’d drowned ♪ ♪ Or if he died on impact, it
must have rolled three times ♪ ♪ Yeah, the only thing
to make matters worse ♪ ♪ Is that his mama’s a
late night ER nurse ♪ ♪ And he was DOA, she
just about lost her mind ♪ (upbeat guitar music) ♪ David’s wife drops by
every once in a while ♪ ♪ Childhood stories
always make her smile ♪ ♪ But somehow we always
go back to that day ♪ ♪ And I found his truck in
the floodplain upside down ♪ ♪ It was a hell of a rain, I
don’t know if he’d drowned ♪ ♪ Or if he died on impact, it
must have rolled three times ♪ ♪ Yeah, the only thing
to make matters worse ♪ ♪ Is that his mama’s a
