PATTY LOVELESS


On Down The Line Lyrics

Tryin' to make a livin, that's the bottom line
And it ain't easy tryin' to stretch a nickel into a dime
Sweatin' for the Dollar, workin' for the man
Half goes to the landlord, Lord and half to Uncle Sam

I can't get no consolation, I don't get no paid vacation
I can't get no satisfaction and my tractor don't get no traction
Just doin' the best I can, just tryin' to make a stand
Laughin' and cryin', livin' and dyin' on down the line

I'll leave my soul to Jesus, I'll give my heart to you
And if you want the rest of me, well darlin' you can have that too
Only love can save me, so darlin' don't be late
If I don't get your lovin' soon, I swear I'm gonna die today

I can't get no consolation, I don't get no paid vacation
I can't get no satisfaction and my tractor don't get no traction
Just doin' the best I can, just tryin' to make a stand
Laughin' and cryin', livin' and dyin' on down the line

If I were a rich girl, it wouldn't be the same
I'd buy me a Cadillac and then I'd change my name
A poor girls dream inside me and you by my side
We drive into the sunset, ride sweet baby ride

I can't get no consolation, I don't get no paid vacation
I can't get no satisfaction and my tractor don't get no traction
Just doin' the best I can, just tryin' to make a stand
Laughin' and cryin', livin' and dyin' on down the line

On down the line
On down the line
On down the line
On down the line
On down the line
On down the line
On down the line
