Just Enough

You said I was 15 when I first tasted lightning
From a batch my daddy made himself
I stole a jug for me and the neighbour's daughter
I wanted her more than I feared daddy's belt

And when the buzzing took the place of the burning
Well that drunk kiss she gave me
Made me burn more than I ever burned before
And it was just enough, just enough
Yeah, just enough to want some more

Like a drop of water to a thirsty man
Like a postcard picture of the promise land
A piece of penny candy from an old dime store
And it was just enough, just enough
Yeah, just enough to want some more

Then he said,
I was up for anything when I was younger
I raised more hell than the devil did himself
But the good Lord must have knew I needed an angel
As I was on my way to an early grave or jail
She was a breath of spring in a long green cotton dress
And she looked my way when I didn't know what I was looking for
And it was just enough, just enough
Yeah, just enough to want me some more

Like a sip of whiskey to a drinking man
Like a sprinkle of rain on the desert sand
A little ray of daylight on the jail house floor
And it was just enough, just enough
Yeah, just enough to want me some more

Then he said,
Now I'm old and cripple and some would say wiser
I can't believe how fast the years they fly
And the one thing that I've learned in all my years of living
Is that you never lived enough when you die

Like a drop of water to a thirsty man
Like a postcard picture of the promise land
A piece of penny candy from an old dime store
And it was just enough, just enough
Yeah, just enough
And it was just enough, just enough
Yeah, just enough
It was just enough, just enough
Yeah, just enough to want me some more
