lyrics

Verse 1
It's seventeen till and I've got ten hours to go
Guess that’s how Maloney wants it to be
Had some ideas to get us movin' and raise up
But here I am got a wife and new kid to feed

Chorus
It's gets to be a man can't earn a dollar
Nothing anyway but a rich man’s penny
Lord what's to do but get a goddamn drink
A goddamn drink, a goddamn drink

Verse 2
Oh it's two hours to go till quitting time
Some of these other fellas are talking strike
And I said oh Larry, Larry, good God
"Don't you know we gave up those rights"

Chorus
It's gets to be a man can't earn a dollar
Nothing anyway but a rich man’s penny
Lord what's to do but get a goddamn drink
A goddamn drink, a goddamn drink


Chorus
It's gets to be a man can't earn a dollar
Nothing anyway but a rich man’s penny
It's gets to be a man can't earn a dollar
Nothing anyway but a rich man’s penny
It's gets to be a man can't earn a dollar
Nothing anyway but a rich man’s penny
Lord what's to do but get a goddamn drink
A goddamn drink, a goddamn drink
A goddamn drink, a goddamn drink

Dropping Sully’s sound features a funky backbeat, dynamic two guitar interplay and Chris Robinson-tinged vocals. ... more
