lyrics

Lyrics Rick Miller Copyright 2014

I don't wanna work for the railroad
I don't wanna work in the mines
I wanna tour the country in a bluegrass band
Gettin' paid for havin’ a good time
Gettin’ paid just for havin’ a good time

Daddy broke his back for the railroad
Working on the Chattahoochee line
I wanna pick guitar, sing a gospel song or two
Gettin' paid for havin’ a good time
Gettin' paid just for havin a good time

Don't wanna hang my hat in a tin shack
Livin on the government dime
I'd just as soon live out of my knap-sack, darlin’
Gettin' paid

They'll rob you of the fire in your spirit
Take away the best years of your prime
I wanna put smiles on the faces of drunk strangers
Gettin' paid for havin’ a good time
Gettin' paid just for havin a good time

Anyone can learn to play the banjo
Any damn fool can learn to rhyme
It's just about as easy as falling off a log
Gettin' paid for havin’ a good time
Gettin' paid just for havin a good time
