Never owned a brand new car
I Never worked in a white collar
I Never held a woman longer
Than I held one single dollar
Never went out chasin' rainbows
'Cause there can't be that much to it
Even if i found my pot of gold
I'd probably piss right through it

I can't remember ever wanting
For one second of my life
Even if I did it cost too much
To ever pay the price
I don't dance out on the dark side
Ain't no secrets I can tell
So you don't have to say a prayer for me
I just said one for myself


I'm livin' my life
Under my terms
I'm callin' the shots
As far as I can see
I don't owe nobody nothin''
I don't answer to a soul
It Might not work for you
But it works for me

I've been bent and bruised and broken
And flat busted once or twice
I brought most of it upon myself
But I never compromised
My pride's too hard to swallow
So I've chewed a lot of it
Mild-mannered and soft-hearted
And hard-headed as you get
I live out on the backroads
Where I walk my country mile
And if it's so good in the city
Why don't anybody smile?
Ah The traffic's always heavy
And that air ain't fit to breathe
Now I ain't saying that it's wrong for you
It just don't make sense to me

I'm livin' my life
Under my terms
I'm callin' the shots
As far as I can see
I don't owe nobody nothin''
I don't answer to a soul
It Might not work for you,
It Might not work for you....
But it works for me
