(main run) w/rhythm fig.3

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days.
And people I meet, always go their seperate ways.
Sometimes you tell the day by the bottle that you drink.
And times when you're alone all you do is drink.

I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back.
I play for keeps, cause I might not make it back.
I've been everywhere, still I'm standing tall.
I've seen a million faces, and I've rocked them all.  (w/rhythm fig.5)
