Lyrics:

He was as high as a kite

Leanin’ heavy at the bar

A legend everywhere

Killin’ demons with his guitar

 

Then out of his darkness

For a moment his eyes were clear

He called my name

Leaned his head

And dropped a whiskey tear

 

And he said…

Don’t follow me

You don’t wanna go where I have been

Don’t follow me

Get out of those lights

They blind ya…can’t you see

Get on home, boy

And don’t you follow me

 

It’s been years now

He’s still hangin’ on

And I made it to the top

Buyin’ demons of my own

 

But the walls are closin’ in

I’m leanin’ heavy at the bar

See his eyes

Hear him callin’ my name

 

Don’t follow me

You don’t wanna go where I have been

Don’t follow me

Get out of those lights

They blind ya…can’t you see

Get on home, boy

And don’t you follow me

 

You won’t find it down this way

The more the money the more the pain

You’ll believe there’s no way out

And all your heart can say

To love that comes your way is

Don’t follow me

Don’t follow me, yeah

Don’t follow me

 

He was as high as a kite

Leanin’ heavy at the bar
