lyrics

Sit on down and reason out a bit of the day
but in the morning they just caught in the rain.
Sit on down and lie there on the bed as they say
well, the leavin' is the easier way.
Chorus
Sit down, sit down,
in the weeds on the way.
Sing out, sing out Etta Mae.
Sing out, sing out,
in the weeds on the road.
Cry out, cry out, Cassie Jo.

Well to begin again the sparrow is their favorite friend
and they ask her how and why when she flies.
Hell is sittin' in a bottle and and they know it'll end
oh, but will they find the will there to try?
Chorus
Well in the middle all the lovin' is their favorite thing
but they never knew the sparrow could sing.
Well, the scarring of the heart it ain't their favorite part
and as it flies, the sparrow will cry.
Chorus
Bridge-
Reason, reason,
feeling all the pain and then bite down, fight now,
the weeds are growing, weeds are showing.
Reasons, reasons,
stealin' all the shade for the light now, right now,
weeds are growing, weeds are showing
Reasons, reasons, reasons,
leavin' is the easier bye now, right now,
them weeds are growing down.

In the end the simple sin is trying to stay
but in the morning they just caught in the rain.
Sit on down and reason out the running away
cause the leaving is the easier way.
Believing is the easier way.
Chorus
End
