This workin' all day ain't gettin' me no where
Breaking my back won't get it done
I wish I had a dime,
I wish I had a dollar
For every dream that I gave up on y'all

This hammer I'm swingin' is startin' to feel heavy
I clinched my fist when I punched the clock
A little for the bank leaves nothin' for my baby
Pushin' my pay check around the block

Yeah, Whoo-hoo

I need to go face first into that fresh air
Way up there where the eagle fly
I need to drive a lot in that cool clear water
And leave the city behind and get country,
Oh, countrified

A fool's gold watch and lung full of black smoke
Is all I get now for what I gave
My only reward for this broken-down body
Was diggin' my way to an early grave

I always dreamed I'd end up on a river
Fast asleep on a mountain high
But I'm stuck down here in this concrete valley
In a sea of bumpers and red tail lights

Yeah, Whoo-hoo

Oh, I need to go face first into that fresh air
Way up there where the eagle fly
I need to drive a lot in that cool clear water
And leave the city behind and get country,
Oh, countrified

Double time! Yeah

I need to go face first into that fresh air
Way up there where the eagle flies
I need to drive a lot in that cool clear water
And leave the city behind and get countrified
Oh yeah, countrified

Mmm hmm

This workin' all day ain't gettin' me no where
Breaking my back won't get it done
I wish I had a dime,
I wish I had a dollar
For every dream that I gave up on y'all

Oh, that I gave up on
No
Yeah, Woo-hoo
Go on and get countrified
