  1. The Grass Don’t Get No Greener -:-- / 3:37

The grass don’t get no greener
Than on my side of the fence
I whooped my demons years ago And I ain’t seen ’em since
So I been living cleaner
And I don’t get so tense
‘Cause the grass don’t get no greener Than on my side of the fence

But I remember a time When I thought I would die No matter how hard I tried She was never satisfied

The grass don’t get no bluer
Than on my side of the fence
She lit out of her three months ago I ain’t seen her since
My bills are high lonesome
I can’t pay the rent
And the grass don’t get no bluer Than on my side of the fence

So I cried and I cried
And I shouted at the sky And I went down full throttle And I lived in my bottle
Just to get by

The grass don’t get no kinder
Than on my side of the fence
My buzz kicked into overdrive
And I don’t make no sense
So burn my lemons faster
And reconvene my tents
‘Cause the grass don’t get no kinder Than on my side of the fence
