Jerry Jeff Walker
I'm just sitting here counting my money
Wondering why I'm in love with you honey
And why everybody is so high strung these days
Price of living here has gone sky high
But guys like me we're always getting by
Babe told me, "A lean dog can run a long race."
All I know is you gotta keep trying
You gotta laugh now and then to keep from crying
The only sure thing is taxes and dying
And your lovin makes the living worth while
Someday I'm more gone in here
Some days I like to just sit and drink beer.
And some days I can't wait until I get home
All I like to d is play music and golf
The money I make pays the IRS off
Without you, Susan, I'd simply be a rolling stone
Ooh without you I'd have no one to sleep with (++)
Nobody to laugh with late at night
Without you there'd be no light in the window
There'd be no reason to write.
Well I've been sued and screwed and tattooed.
But I"m standing right here in front of you
Telling you that even the best of 'em make a mistake
We're all livin' life day to day
The whole damn world's just feeling it's way
But you can tell them ol' Jerry Jeff said it's OK (ok, ok!)
Makes ya smile, hoo, hoo, hoo
