Rough Couple Of Years


Jim Colyer

Recommended Posts

v1
Mother died, 2010
Didn't help at all to pray
So I stayed half drunk
Laid in bed all day
Hard to manage, hard to cope
Couldn't shake the guilt I felt
Wanted to give up
Maybe shoot myself

chorus
Rough Couple Of Years
10, 11, half of 12
I'm telling you, man
I went through hell
Fell on hard times
Anguish and tears
Been there, done that
Rough Couple Of Years

v2
Got mugged in the street
Got hit from behind
He stole my wallet
He robbed me blind
He took my car keys
He stole my phone
Even took my glasses
Then left me alone

chorus
Rough Couple Of Years
10, 11, half of 12
I'm telling you, man
I went through hell
Fell on hard times
Anguish and tears
Been there, done that
Rough Couple Of Years

v3
Backed into a car
Some Chinese dude
He pissed me off
I tried to be rude
Geico paid the bill
He's outta my life
Gotta have insurance
For trouble and strife

chorus
Rough Couple Of Years
10, 11, half of 12
I'm telling you, man
I went through hell
Fell on hard times
Anguish and tears
Been there, done that
Rough Couple Of Years

v4
I slipped on some ice
I injured my knee
Walked with a cane
Through January
I heard from my ex
Making threats again
Don't want no lawyers
Don't want no women

chorus

v5
On top of all this
Got a DUI
I hate them cops
Man, that's no lie
I finally got up
In 2013
Got another decade
To be nasty and mean

chorus

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
