RONNIE DUNN


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.

I'm not a country fan but this song hits home for everyone the economy has affected. Is about a man pleading for a job and his willingness to take any available position even if he's over qualified.

This song is not just about the military. This song is not just about one company closing. This song is about a man filling out a resume applying for a new job because the COST OF LIVING IS HIGH.

Ronnie has a great voice and I love the melody of this song.This was a waste of a great melody, a great voice to lyrics that I'm sorry are awful.Only my opinion though?

Awesome song and lyrics. Most people can relate to the hard life that settles on all of us, whether military or civilian.

This is a very strong and so true song. It sure hits alot of American families and their struggles just to keep their family a float. God Bless Us All through these rough times.

These are some of the worst lyrics I have ever heard. My cat writes better stuff. This guy is a no-talent tool and caters to low iq hayseeds.
