Smooth Sailing by Old Dominion

Lyrics

I feel like a beat up back road
All full of potholes
Man, I’m on a hell of a ride
Doing my best and I can’t get arrested
I can’t get time on my side
Down on my luck and I’m down on my knees
And I’m down to my last dirty dime
Red sky morning, it keeps on pouring
Just like the tears in my eyes

I’m looking for smooth sailing
Feeling the breeze on my back
Get my blues fading
My weather and my wheels on track
Come hell or high water
The sun’s gonna shine
Might not be tomorrow but I know I’m gonna find
Smooth sailing
Watch me sail away

The flowers are dying
My woman is crying herself to sleep every night
And people try to be nice and they give me advice
But they ain’t got a dog in this fight
What’s left of my faith is a drop in the tank
Here lately, I’ve been running on fumes
But there’s a new sun rising on the horizon
Lord, I hope I get there soon

I’m looking for smooth sailing
Feeling the breeze on my back
Get my blues fading
My weather and my wheels on track
Come hell or high water
The sun’s gonna shine
Might not be tomorrow but I know I’m gonna find
Smooth sailing
I’m looking for smooth sailing

I could use it, I could use it
I could use a little tide turn
I could use it before I lose it
I could use a little
I could use a little smooth sailing

I’m looking for smooth sailing
Feeling the breeze on my back
Get my blues fading
My weather and my wheels on track
Come hell or high water
The sun’s gonna shine
Might not be tomorrow but I know I’m gonna find
Smooth sailing
I’m looking for smooth sailing
Watch me sail away
