I just came to smell the flowers here in someone's darkest hour
I don't even know the one they've laid to rest
But anyplace there's a crowd and anywhere they're crying loud
Just seems to be the place I love the best.

Surrounded by the blues in a place that losers use
Where one smile cost at least a million tears
Look in for my past in the bottom of a glass
The only place I've looked for many years.

Now the ground don't seem so very low when you're down
About as far as you can go
And it's pretty hard to smile while the whole world laughs in your face
And with no will left to live the world moves fast while you lie still
Too weak to stand and just not enough man to join the race.

So I just came to smell the flowers here in someone's darkest hour
I don't even know the one they've laid to rest
But anyplace there's a crowd and anywhere they're crying loud
Just seems to be the place I love the best...
