I went to an AA meeting,
though I don't recall the words.
There must've been some kind of peace there
that I know I don't deserve,
oh 'cause I can't stay quit for the life of me,
though I drink so dangerously.
I keep thinking hallelujah's in the next glass.
I keep thinking the lord's looking out for me.

I wanna own my own gun.
I wanna be called a man.
I wanna hunt my own food,
strike a bargain with the land.
Oh, I'm tired of all these Yankees,
and what they don't understand.
Who the hell lives here anyway?
It's too goddamn cold.
Goddamn cold, goddamn cold.

I know there's some kind of wilderness
out there for fools like me.
I gotta find me that place,
oh and I'm gonna build.
I'm gonna build.
I'm gonna build.
I'm gonna build, oh, till I'm dead!
