about

Common John (Southern Shame) is the newest single from Nashville indie rock quartet Creature Comfort. Released in June 2017, the song reflects on the current political climate.

lyrics

It's been decided by the priest I'm just a common john
Diggin' holes in the dirt just to pass the time
I've compromised my sanity for all that I believe
Everything that I hear and half of what I see
I've got a new vanity plate strapped around my neck
Letting everyone know what kind of man I am
The kind to knock you off your feet and hold you to the ground
And convince you that all the lies are truths now

You won't let me have a change of heart
And I should've know it
And you controlled me from the very start
Oh and I should've seen it coming
Oh and I should've seen it coming

The streets are as busy as the bees building up their hives
Just in time for the new kids to wear their pride
Showing off the best they can with everything they've got
But the turnover rate is high in this town
And you can't see hypocrisy through a telescope
You're looking many miles away for something so close
And you can cut it with a knife and wipe it off your chin
Well I'm here to shed my skin and all of my southern shame

And you won't let me have a change of heart
And I should've know it
And you controlled me from the very start
Oh and I should've seen it coming
Oh and I should've seen it coming
Oh and I should've seen it coming
Oh and I should've seen it coming
