lyrics

Livin' on the road a hundred nights a year
Fueled by fried food and draught beer
Meetin' good people, always havin' good times
I don't know if I could go back to the other side of life

On the other side of life
All my pals got kids and wives
Mortgages, student loans and cocaine habits
I coulda been the same but I saw a chance to make my name
When opportunity comes you know I'll grab it

Livin' on the road from town to town
Keeps my guitar warm and my boots on the ground
Fast livin', fast women and all them fast handed dancers
If I was a prayin' man, Lord, I'd say my prayers was answered

On the other side of life
All my pals got kids and wives
Mortgages, student loans and cocaine habits
I coulda been the same but I saw a chance to make my name
When opportunity comes you know I'll grab it

Sure there are times when I miss home
But this road is the only life I've ever known
And I know we'll be hittin' that dusty trail soon
Where the only familiar sight is the light of the moon

On the other side of life
All my pals got kids and wives
Mortgages, student loans and cocaine habits
I coulda been the same but I saw a chance to make my name
When opportunity comes you know I'll grab it
And who in the world put antlers on that rabbit?
