Set In My Ways

(Steve Simpson)
I heard the rooster cry, “Sunshine’s wasting”,
And I reached out to pat you awake.
When my hand touched thin air, I remembered you weren’t there.
I guess I’m just set in my ways.

Walking home from the fields, I saw our chimney,
I said I guess she’s not cooking today.
Then I broke my stride, when I realized.
I guess I’m just set in my ways.

I still reach for your hand when I pray,
I guess I’m just set in my ways.

Settled down by the fire in the evening,
I got my guitar and started to play,
I still stopped at the part, where your singing should start.
I guess I’m just set in my ways.

I still reach for your hand when I pray,
I guess I’m just set in my ways.

Heard the rooster cry, “Sunshine’s wasting”,
And I reached out to pat you awake.
When my hand touched thin air,
I remembered you weren’t there.
I guess I’m just set in my ways.
