lyrics

I been so concerned with payin' my dues I havent paid my bills in months.
I got a bad case of them weary blues goin hungry cos this dog won't hunt.
I made alot of more mistakes than I ever made money but my darlin' dont seem to mind. Lookin for the land of milk and honey but draught beer is all I ever find.

The world is one big puddle and i got holes in my boots. Some say i was born lookin for trouble but baby i was born to lose.

Sometimes i get to thinkin' I've been playin it wrong if i ever wanna see a buck. Give up writing my darn own songs and start singing about pickup trucks. I know deep down I aint that sort but a mans gotta earn his keep.
I wonder how much I could afford before I started losing sleep.

Call me old fashioned you're probably right but I aint the fashionable kind. Its bound to happen one of these nights i'll get so old fashioned I'll up and die. Or maybe i'll just end up at the legion bar drinkin' with the other coots. I'll be tellin' stories of how I got this far and how they used to call me ol boots.
