If my old truck was a horse I'd have to shoot it
Lord, the day my ship came in I was waiting for a train
Everytime I get a grip I always lose it
I can't enjoy the sunshine for the rain.

Hon., you know I'm always saying I'm sorry
But you stand by me through it all
Seems like everytime I make my mark
Somebody always paints the wall.

Everytime I think I'm off and running
I'm barely up to a crawl
Everytime I get a leg up on the ladder of success
I shake and fall.

Back last week down at the factory
I was up for a promotion
And the bosses little brother got the call
Seems like everytime I make my mark
Somebody always paints the wall.

--- Instrumental ---

If my old truck was a horse I'd have to shoot it
Lord, the day my ship came in I was waiting for a train
Everytime I get some news there's nothing to it
You're my only pleasure from the pain.

Hon., you know I'm always saying I'm sorry
But you stand by me through it all
Seems like everytime I make my mark
Somebody always paints the wall.

Seems like everytime I make my mark
Somebody always paints the wall...
