v.1
My old house is all boarded up
I packed what I needed in a pickup truck
And I’m livin’ in New Hope now
Lost my wife but I didn’t care
All I could see was my own nightmare
But I’m livin’ in New Hope now

ch
Yes I’m living in New Hope -- I quit walkin’ that tightrope
And I’m takin’ a true road leading to New Hope

v. 2
My lover was a bottle that talked to me
It said “I’m gonna keep you good company”
But I’m livin’ in New Hope now
Yeah, I used to sing “Two More Bottles of Wine”
Now I say, “One Day at a Time”
‘Cause I’m livin’ in New Hope now (to ch)

br
And I look at my old friends—they’re killin’ their time
On homegrown grass and supermarket wine
All of their California dreams, they get left up on a shelf
But I walked away, I said I gotta face myself…sometime!

v.3
So now I’m takin’ it easy, takin’ it slow
Knowin’ I still got a long way to go
But I’m livin’ in New Hope now
Hey, I’m gonna win, I’m gonna lose,
I’m gonna write my share of the blues
But I’m livin’ in New Hope now (to ch)
