lyrics

It's one in the morning the trains on the track
it's the fifth girl this month that ya put on her back
you got the mean reds in your belly and the smoke in your eyes
you're never gonna live if you live to survive
to get by, to get by
saying one girl at a time, twelve maids in a line
buddy keep it in mind
her man says he's gonna knock your dick in the ground
skip town, and take the long way around

she's a good lookin woman but aint good to me
I feel like layin down on a guillotine
I keep her in the back of my mind most times
but when she gets to the front, I wanna murder and die
to get by, to get by
treatin me like a crime, I'm drinking cartons of wine,
no bait on the line
I almost lost my mind in her town
but I turned and found, the long way around

I'm gonna get a pistol thats long and tall
gonna shoot all my enemies to see em fall
and any man on earth that tells me Im mislead
I'm gonna burry his family out behind the shed
to get by, to get by
one shovel-full at a time, honey I'm in the pines
leave my mind
I'm packing up a car and gettin Ashland bound
I cant breakdown, on the long road now

My mule don't haul and my bird don't warble
my teeth are spillin out like a sack of marbles
brown baggin buddy but my body is done
I sleep it off in the car on the road in the sun
to get by, to get by
sayin one day at a time, I'll try and walk a straight line
passing neon signs
I'll be alright if I leave the alleys alone
Saint Annio, I'm on the first train home
