lyrics

7TH GREATEST DANCER IN THIS BAR

You got them opiated junkie good looks
And the money you made last year wasn’t on the books
Big brown eyes, you’ve seen this wild world over
Taught yourself how to hot wire a car
You sleep alone tonight, you are your own true lover
And you’re the seventh greatest dancer in this bar

Big brown boots and your legs are sore from swimmin
Seems like summer came earlier this year
Before you know it, its back up north to do the fishing
I catch you praying to the lord when you come back
She’ll be here

A man is just a man til’ he’s got blisters
Calloused hands and something he can sell
A set of wrenches when its time
To screw something up
And money in the bank when he’s got to run like hell
A little money in the bank when he’s got to run like hell

Opiated
Won’t you call my name
I’ll be there in the stars of Alaska
The one that had this dance when you asked her
The one that you kissed up on the pick up truck
And oh,
A man is just a man
