I got cigarettes and bus tickets on my mind, now I'm sitting on the corner till closing time, so I can busk my way to the end of the day
maybe make a little money on this street of mine
I've got no job and I've got no car but I've got a mandolin and an acoustic guitar
so I'll play some songs for you nice folks, standing right here on the side of the road

But I'm really not waiting for anything to go my way
because I've been to the bottom and back, still walking on the same track
Heading anywhere but where I'm from
because I've learned to make a home out of my scar tissue and broken bones and people that I hardly know

Verse 2:
Lately Ive been feeling a little to much that I might be down on my luck
The whiskey's been my only crutch but i guess its lost it's touch
I've made friends that last for an hour or two
but at the end of the night I'm still singing the blues
I got bloodshot eyes and a mouth so dry that I'm just begging for one more drink


So I'll play my stage beneath the streetlights
I'l sing my heart out all night
break my strings, take my change tomorrow I'll do it again
because I'll still be broke and hungry
because I had to pay my rent
But in the end with you my friends, I guess that it was all time well spent
