Pay Dirt (Just the lyrics)

Recommended Posts

I got pretty much how I want it to go. Might record it later, or let it brew in the pot for a day.

 

Pay Dirt – By MikeO Aug 14, 2018

 

Thinking about travelin back to the old homestead

Been along a long time from where I’ve been

It’s another night out, on another back road

My Mamma told once You’ll reap what you sow.

 

Never been one to stick around

I got 200 miles to the next damn town

Another dollar short on another long day

Where night after night starts to look the same

 

Chorus

I’ve been thinkin about us for a while

From every exit sign, to ever interstate mile

So tired of those nights being alone. I’ll promise you this time

I’ll gonna hit pay dirt, and get back home

 

Living the life from the back of my truck

So many nights you just really wanna give up

But you press on just to stay alive

White knuckles on the wheel through the sleet and ice

 

Never looked for trouble, but never ran from a fight

But all those bars looks start to look alike

Some how it all works out

I can count on lady luck, when the chips are down

 

Chorus

 

So tired of those nights being alone. I’ll promise you this time

I’ll gonna hit pay dirt, and stay back home

Intro

 

Living the life from the back of my truck

So many nights you just wanna give up

But you press on just to stay alive

White knuckles on the wheel through the snow and ice

 

Never looked for trouble, never ran from a fight

Where all those bars looks start to look alike

Some how it all works out

I can count on lady luck, when my chips are down

 

Chorus

 

I’m keep any possible leads short

Lead G / G SSU2/ C / G /

G / G SSU2/ C / D / D

 

Never looked for trouble, but never ran from a fight

Where all those bars look start to look alike

Somehow it all works out

I can count on lady luck, when the chips are down

 

I’ll gonna hit pay dirt, and get back home 2x

Outro

(Slowly )

I’ve been thinkin about us for a while

Another exit sign, another interstate mile
