Jimmie Van Zant – When You Gonna Learn Lyrics

There ain’t a drink
That’s gonna help you make that turn”
“If you keep running down
That hill at full throttle
Boy, you’re gonna crash and burn
When you gonna learn?” There ain’t a drink
That’s gonna help you make that turn”
“If you keep running down
That hill at full throttle
Boy, you’re gonna crash and burn
When you gonna learn?”
I remember that night
That it finally did sink in
I found a note on the table
‘Neath a white gold wedding band
Might have changed her mind
But I didn’t make it home ’til three a.m
Was out bitching to some buddies
About being a married man
I never will forget it, the words she said
“When you gonna learn
That you can’t fix this with a bottle? He was sitting up waiting
In his chair when I got home
He saw my stagger
And the red in my eyes
I’d been trying to drown the pain
From a heart that just got broke
He said, “Son, that ain’t no way to make it right
Everybody’s been there and you’ll survive”
“When you gonna learn
That you can’t fix this with a bottle?
