The promoter says he wants to cancel Cause there ain't enough tickets sold The air conditioner on the bus just broke And I can't shake this cold
The single lost the bullet, The singer's losin' his wife; Well I might be crazy but I wouldn't change A single thing about this life.
Sometimes we feel like champions, Sometimes we just can't win, Sometimes our records hit the top of the charts Or the discount bargain bins.
Through 30 years of touring We've remained partners, brothers, and friends We keep it together cause we love it and we're sure We'll be big time before it all ends.
Well you know you've got the Nitty Gritty And Jimmy's got his drums along Then Jeffrey and me and Bobby will be Singing all our favorite songs
Catch the fire from the folks in the front row Fan the flames as the beat gets strong It's great to be a part of something So good that's lasted so long
Well I saw a story in the paper Suddenly the band's big news The critics all like our records just fine But they seem a bit confused
Is it folk or rock or country Seems like everybody cares but us So just leave us an early wakeup call So we don't miss the bus
The band says it can't stand my latest song, it's too personal But my first wife's second marriage blew up She had to get the dang thing annulled Well if that ain't something to sing about Well you tell me what is And we'll give it a beat and put it on the street And we just might have another hit
