I Owe You My Life

Nothing to do but hang out behind Frank’s

The store parking lot where we sat and drank

There was just me, Randy, Terry and Luke

How many can you drink before you puke


No money or jobs and the car is dead

Small town life can really mess with your head

Wondering if you really need that shit

‘Cause some Joker said you got to have it


You came along and showed me a new way

I had to make a choice to go or stay

Either leave now or probably die here

We can run away and just disappear


Comes a time when you have to make choices

I couldn’t be alone, lost in the voices

You became me; I knew you’d never leave

I had to have trust in you and believe


You chased out the demons and let me rest

Gave me your soul and pulled me from that mess

You gave me your heart and became my wife

I gave you my love, but owe you my life

  1. This brought tears to my eyes. 🙂 She was your salvation…your rescue…at a time when you needed it most. I’m so glad! I bet in many ways she is still your salvation. 🙂
    I wonder if you think about how life would have been if she had not come along and showed you a new way?
    You have much to be grateful for! 🙂
    (((HUGS))) to you, Jerry, and (((HUGS))) for your sweet wife!
    ❤ ,
    Carolyn 🙂
