Hemingway Lyrics

I drove an ambulance in the War to end all wars
Before I wrote the news in the Kansas City Star
I was wounded near the front handing soldiers cigarettes
Got a medal but the man beside me got a grave with no address
And he had a wife
I guess that's the life of a man
It's one hell of a life

Once I moved to Paris, met all the biggest names
I cut a scar above my eye tugging on a ceiling chain
Saw matadors in Spain, seen em dying in Madrid
There barely pushing 25 I was still older than these kids
Gored like a knife
I guess that's the life of a man
It's one hell of a life

I was fishing in the islands, caught a marlin off the coast
But the sharks descended on me, and they haunted me the most
As I hauled in the bones, some thought I caught a shark
I never knew a stranger's words could cut me down so stark
Just like a scythe
I guess that's the life of a man
It's one hell of a life

I could always turn to whiskey if I had to ease the pain
I could drown the voices down into the bottom of my brain
Now awards and flowers are piled high upon my grave
And my suicide's been shadowed by my glory days
And my storied might
I guess that's the life of a man
It's one hell of a life
I guess that's the life of a man
It's one hell of a life
