Allman Brothers Band – High Cost Of Low Living Lyrics

You’re the life of the party, everybody’s host

Still you need somewhere you can hide

All your good time friends

And your farewell to has-beens

Lord knows, just along for the ride

You think you’re a survivor

But boy, you better think twice

No one rides for nothin’

So, step up and pay the price

It’s a high cost of low livin’

Ain’t it high time, you turn yourself around

Yeah, the high cost of low livin’

It’s bound to put you six feet in the ground

So many here who love ya

But still, you just can’t tell

Real ones and those who drop your name

All the while behind your back

They lift the flesh right from your bones

You should know by now through all their game

They’ve been chasing each dream with whiskey

From here to Tokyo

Usin’ up all your real friends

Places left to go

It’s a high cost of low livin’

Ain’t it high time you turn yourself around

Yeah, the high cost of low livin’

It’s bound to put you six feet in the ground

Don’t look behind you

Ahh, don’t look back

Don’t turn to find reason in the past

Past is gone, gone at last

And it’s high cost of low livin’

And it’s high time you turn yourself around

Well, the high cost of low livin’

It’s bound to put you six feet in the ground
