Well I am workin' real hard
and not gettin' paid
and I'm sick of this life
and I gotta get a break
I've been real high
and I've been down low
and I live in a shack
on a country dirt road
Well I'm workin real hard and not gettin' paid
and I'm sick of this life and I gotta get a break
and I just cant get by anymore
I've been real high and I've been down low
and I live in a shack on a country dirt road
and my best friend is my backup forty-four
Well workin' real hard ain't hard to do
when you got you a lotta money comin' to you
but I ain't got a dime so I'll just sit here
even though I'm broke I've got a six-pack of beer
Well I've paid my dues
and I've paid my rent
and they still try to take everything they can
Well I thought I had a good thing going on
but the sheriff broke my door and he took me on
and he said "hey boy, you owe the government"
Well workin' real hard ain't hard to do
when you got you a lotta money comin' to you
but I ain't got a dime so I'll just sit here
even though I'm broke I've got a six-pack of beer
Well I'm workin' real hard and not gettin' paid
and I'm sick of this life and I gotta get a break
and I just can't get by anymore
I've been real high and I've been down low
and I live in a shack on a country dirt road
and my best friend is my backup forty-four
Well workin' real hard ain't hard to do
when you got you a lotta money comin' to you
but I ain't got a dime so I'll just sit here
even though I'm broke I've got a six-pack of beer
