Lyrics

It's Monday night and I am singing
On this makeshift stage that's swinging
Every time my foot goes in the air

The one guy who was listening
Took off when I broke a string
Now it's just three drunk guys and a whore
Fuck this shit, I'm through with it, I ain't playing here no more

It's my name on the bar marquee
But Nascar's on the bar TV
And guess which one is taking center stage

Cuz driving round in circles is what
Drunken guys prefer cuz they know
Thinking's such an awful chore
Fuck this shit, I'm through with it, I ain't playing here no more


All night long it's happy hour
Half price off of whiskey sours
Anything to get 'em through the door

I sing my pretty tunes
To this hillbilly saloon
Where the best that I can hope for is to just be ignored
Fuck this shit, I'm through with it, I ain't playing here no more

There's a rat that's crawling on the table
Chewing on my power cable
The worst part is that no one seems to care

The bathroom reeks of piss and vomit
The toilet has got no seat on it
So the last guy must have used the floor
Fuck this shit, I'm through with it, I ain't playing here no more
Fuck this shit, I'm through with it


The asshole in the corner
With attention deficit disorder
Won't stop shouting terrible requests

I'm glad you think that Freebird rocks
Here's a quarter, there's the jukebox
Skynyrd's number 4874
Fuck this shit, I'm through with it, I ain't playing here no more

The night is finally over
It's last call and time to go and I have
Never been so tired in my life

I collect my little paycheck
Then I settle up my tab and give them
Every dime they paid me, then some more
Fuck this shit, I'm through with it, I ain't playing here no more
Fuck this shit, I'm through with it

if this is the start of the week, I can't wait to see what happens next. The banjo is terrific, and you catch the delightful ambiance of life in a dive. And congratulations on the new guitar--it's darn pretty :).
