Cost Of Livin' Lyrics

Everything to know about me

Is written on this page

The number you can reach me

My social and my age

Yes I served in the army

It's where I learned to shoot

Eighteen months in the desert

Pourin' sand out of my boots

No I've never been convicted of a crime

I could start this job at any time.

I got a strong back

Steel toes

I rarely call in sick

A good truck

What I don't know

I catch on real quick

I work weekends

If I have to

Nights and holidays

Give you 40

And then some

Whatever it takes

Three dollars and change at the pump

Cost of livin's high and goin' up.

I put Robert down as a reference

He's known me all my life

We attend the same church

He introduced me to my wife

Gave my last job everything

Before it headed south

Took the shoes off of my children's feet

The food out of their mouths

Yesterday my folks offered to help

But they're barely getting by themselves

I got a strong back

Steel toes

I rarely call in sick

A good truck

What I don't know

I catch on real quick

I work weekends

If I have to

Nights and holidays

Give you 40

And then some

Whatever it takes

Three dollars and change at the pump

Cost of livin's high and goin' up.

I'm sure a hundred others have applied

Rumor has it you're only takin' five

I got a strong back

Steel toes

I'm handy with a wrench

There's nothing I can't drive

Nothing I can't fix

I work sun-up to sun-down

Ain't too proud to sweep the floors

Bank has started calling

And the wolves are at my door

Three dollars and change at the pump

Cost of livin's high and goin' up.
