This song is moving, emotional, and to the point. The lyrics are poignant and are a directive to avoid drugs.

    Keith's awesome too, but he's a different kind of country (though Defying Gravity is a little too "middle-of-the-road" for me, not country enough.) Jamey's more old school. AMAZING songwriter! He just keeps evolving. But yes, one of the few "true" artists in the country game these days. I'm a country singer/songwriter here in Nashville, and if there were more artists like Jamey around, the music world would be in much better shape.

    Wow, very great Song. I like it very much.


I was just a normal guy, life was just a nine to five
With bills and pressure piled up to the sky
She never asked, she knew I'd be hanging with my wilder friends
Looking for some other way to fly

Jamey Johnson - High Cost Of Living Lyrics
