Drowning On Dryland© music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Can't pay the bills today
Can't afford tomorrow
Got no money coming in
Nothing left to borrow
Can't pay the bills today
Can't afford tomorrow
No one offering a helping hand
You know I'm drowning on dryland

I drank a lot of whiskey
I hit a lot of weed
Bad luck and trouble
Seem to follow me
I drank a lot of whiskey
I hit a lot of weed
No one offering a helping hand
You know I'm drowning on dryland

Bridge
No food in the kitchen
No gas in the tank
The wells run dry
No money in the bank
There's no one offering a helping hand
You know I'm drowning on dryland

[Solo/Break]

Bridge
No food in the kitchen
No gas in the car
The wells run dry
Gotta pawn my guitar
There's no one offering a helping hand
You know I'm driving on dryland

I would pray please help me Lord
But I've tried I can't pray no more
I guess it's just a part of his plan
He's going to leave me poor
I would pray please help me Lord
But I've tried I can't pray no more
No one offering a helping hand
You know I'm drowning on dryland
