lyrics

Front porch steps with Ida Mae
kill mosquitoes all the live long day
hurricane making landfall today
that’ll have to do for now

Nothing to do but while away
right here at home is where I wanna stay
tomorrow comes the story change
that’ll have to do for now

I’m still alive, still alive
wanna work more than to survive
got the time, knowhow, and pride
that’ll have to do for now

mid- September still too hot
tomatoes grow in an old tin pot
while across the street an empty lot
that’ll have to do for now

December come you best be ready
have a plan and hands that steady
gonna take a trip out to LA
that’ll have to do for now

Gotta have a song to sing
See what that old storm might bring
got get your girl a diamond ring
That’ll have to do for now

We we were young we took an oath
Cut our palms and spit on the both
Shook on it in the undergrowth
That’ll have to do for now

Feel out of tree and cracked your head
Blood came on down pouring red
Run tell mama Chris is dead
That’ll have to do for now

We’re older now time had its way
Was there still something you wanted to say
i hear every dog will have it’s day
That’ll have to do for now

Nothing that’s too precious can every stay
The winds will come and carry it away
The crows makes a nest of sticks and hay
That’ll have to do for now
