All you ever see on a Saturday night is guys getting drunk and starting a fight, Girls on the kerb crying their ass off, steamers arguing with the bar room staff, Me and my boys yeh we got it right, cos we only drink every weekday night I'd love to see you get a round of shots from the bar to your friends and not spillin the lot On a Friday night when the bar's ten deep, with fools who drink til they fall asleep Don't get me wrong I'll sink a few Bud lights, but only if we do it on a weekday night I don't care for all those part time drunks, who sink one Jack and coke then throw it up (what a waste) I might sound boring and I might sound sad, I might even sound like your daddy's dad, But I've been round the block here's what I've found, you can take this to the bank yeh pound for pound If you wanna have yourself a real good time, get yourself out on a weekday night

The day i found blues, i found it deep in my blood It burst through the gates, and covered me like a flood Now the respect is there, take me under your wing Cos I don't believe in God, but i sure pray to three kings Cos I am what I am, trying to be what I can I chopped and I changed, trying to please who I can But my only mistake was sucking up to the man Without no intent, I just opened my heart Put my fingers on the strings and here's what came out Cos I am what I am, trying to be what I can Got a weight off my mind, got some love in my life Bending over for the fame, now that just ain't my style Singin straight from the soul, shredding my fingers to the bone Centre stage with my guitar, thats the place that I call home Cos I am what I am, trying to be what I can
3.
I'm so tired, of filling the pockets of the man Promised myself one day, I'll pay the bills with this band So sick and sorry of being a slave to the wage Promised myself one day, I'll pay the bills by being on a stage Say to my mother, I'm gonna go real far Say to my father I'm gonna buy you a big blue caddilac car Say to my sweet little girlfriend, I'll pay the bills with this guitar
4.
It's the only drug I need, It's the only air I breathe It's the only mouth I feed, It's the only words I speak It's the only soul I'd save, It's the only road I'd pave It's the only vice I crave, It's the only sound I make I'm talking bout broke man's I'm playing my broke man's blues, Broke man's blues cos it's all I can It's the only touch I feel, It's the only ghost I fear It's the only noise I hear, It's the only voice that's clear It's the colour that I see, When the mirror looks at me It's my one and only friend, It's the beginning and the end I'm talking bout broke man's I'm playing my broke man's blues, Broke man's blues cos it's all I can
5.
I don't got a lot to say but I know right from wrong I ain't gonna go down this path you're pushing me along I got better things to do than bang my head on this wall Find somebody else to tell you pride precedes a fall Cos I'm a lover yeh, but I ain't no fighter Cos I'm a lover yeh, but I ain't no fighter Say whatever you got to it's all goin' over my head Watch me stay ignorant to everything you said Stay a public asshole the choice is only yours Done with wasting my time on keyboard warriors
6.
First Love I've had to let go of so much love This life's not one for a weak heart Don't know where I'm gonna be that day So I have to rain check our next date You know I'm crazy about you But my first love's always goin' be the blues I'm so sorry I cancelled our dinner plans, I need a woman who understands, If I ain't stringin I ain't living, No-one would blame you for not forgiving me, You know I'm crazy about you But my first love's always goin' be the blues If you ever leave, I'll understand A woman like you deserves a better man I ain't the stay at home family type Livin on the road is my kinda life
7.
I got a bad bad feelin, deep down in my bones I got a bad bad feelin, deep down in my bones That girl's goin' hurt me, more than I've ever known I'm fallin so hard for her, I can't even breathe I'm fallin so hard for her, I can't even breathe Well now she's my baby, I pray she never leaves She's my world yeh and, I'm her boy, When she's lonely I'm running to her door I got a bad bad feelin, deep down in my bones That girl's goin' hurt me, more than I've ever known I got a bad bad feeling, she's goin make me cry I got a bad bad feeling, she's goin make me cry I want to be her baby, until the day i die

Started up age twelve with a cheap ass toy guitar Worked out a G. Strummed out a coupla bars Started working on lead about the age of seventeen My dad said son go be the best that you can be So I left home without any plans except one And it's the one you're lookin at Cos all I wanna do is this. Bending strings and penning hits Grow a little stronger each day All I wanna do is try to be so good that when I die The only thing my tombstone will say is "Man that boy could play" Got myself a band. Got a lifetime love affair Found the blues inside. I didn't even know it was there Surprised me to find peace playing every day that passed I like to make like every show could be my very last
9.
I know who I am, I know what you think of me I know what you say, And what you wanna believe I live on the knife edge, between ego and fame You know who you are, so say what you gotta say but I know who I am I hear what you say, I know the people you know I'll land where I aim, sit back and enjoy the show You sit on the fences, between truth and belief I know that you hate, I feed on your jealousy
10.
Well there ain't enough sand in the desert Ain't enough water in the sea No doubt about ain't enough beer from 'Frisco to Tennessee There ain't enough cash in the banks There's ain't enough cheese on the moon The crazy world round there's nothing been found to stop me from loving you I Can't Stop Loving You, I Can't Stop Loving You Darlin what can I do, cos I just can't stop loving you There ain't enough gold in the hills Ain't enough green on the scene Ain't enough strat or tele's been made or movies I wanna see Ain't enough stars in the sky Ain't enough twi in the light I'm telling you girl the whole universe is nothing to your brown eyes I feel like this might last forever But then I thought it always would Now I understand never say never Cos you make me wanna say the words I do
11.
No matter where i may go with my good friends or alone Girl you know ill be true cos im with you And if i leave for a second. Minutes hours or days Or even a year just to be clear I'm with you Done my chasing in days gone by Played the game or at least i tried Burned that black book. Binned those dice Soon as i saw the love of my life No matter who i may meet be they cute or be they sweet girl you know ill be true cos im with you
12.
When I see people sitting on the bus alone It gets me thinkin who they are and where they're goin Is someone waitin', waitin' on them coming home Or just a TV dinner, a bottle and their favourite show But there's no panic, to find that magic, It sparkles and it aches, It's automatic, you're closer to it With every breath you take Cos there's more than enough love for everyone Yeh there's more than enough love for everyone Cos there's more than enough love for everyone Yeh there's more than enough love for everyone Enough for everyone Well I've been happy, and I've been pretty low Sometimes people, aren't who you thought they were But all you've done's figured out what you don't want You get over it, and life keeps moving on
13.
Every night, without a fail, Taxis rev and sirens wail, Rain or snow, you just can't beat A night drinkin dry sauchiehall street, Sauchiehall Street, (Sauchiehall Street) Sauchiehall Street, (Sauchiehall Street) You don't know who you'll meet up, on Sauchiehall Street, You can rock the stage, shoot some pool Or knock back jack if you got the blues My friends and me, we skip the wine Cos every night is tequila time on At 3am, you're drunk and broke All you wanna do is just head on home But hang about, wait a sec The casino will probably let you in 6am, you're drunk and broke, All you wanna do is just head on home, But hang about, think again, Wetherspoons starts serving at 10
