Brothers Of The Road Lyrics

Artist: Hank Williams, Jr.
Album: And Friends

We all go on a two month tour
Nearly work ourselves sick
Now we don't know were all the money goes
But we sure ain't gettin' rich
And I think if that men in New York and L.A.
Are givin' us the old run around
Ya bring 50,000 home and he says your overdrawn
It'll just about get you down
Just about get you down

Chorus:
But we keep on pickin'(Keep on pickin')
And we keep on singin'(Keep on singin')
And we try and try to get high so we can keep on grinin'

Oh you wish you had a home and someone of your own
to love you when you get back in town
But this kind of life don't talk to a wife
It'll just about get you down
Just about get you down

Keep on pickin'
Keep on singin'
(Repeat x2)

Yeah you got fortune and fame and a well known name
Oh your really flyin' high
Whether your rock or country or blues or funky
We're all made the same inside
Livin' in fear of the later years
When nobody's gonna want you around
Yes the brothers of the road all share the same load
and it'll just about get you down
If you let it it'll bring you down

You gotta keep on pickin' (Keep on pickin')
You gotta keep on singin' (Keep on singin')
And you try and you try to stay high
so you can keep on grinin'

You spend a lot of time alone and talkin' on the phone
to the latest love that you've found
Then cry over the girl you really wanted in your world
It'll just about get you down
If you let it it'll bring you down

Just keep on pickin' (Keep on pickin')
Just you gotta keep on singin' (Keep on singin')
You gotta try and try to stay high
So you can keep on grinin'

Livin' in fear of the later years
When nobody's gonna want you around
Yes the brothers of the road all share the same load
And it'll just about get you down
Lord it's got a lot of us down

But I will keep on pickin' (Keep on pickin')
I'm gonna gonna keep on singin' (Keep on singin')
And I'll try and try to stay high so I can keep on grinin'
I'm gonna keep on pickin' (Keep on pickin')
Boy I'll do it
Gonna keep on singin' (Keep on singin')
You gotta try and try my music keeps me high
I'm gonna keep on grinin'

I'm gonna keep on pickin'
Keep on grinin'
Keep on singin' (Keep on singin')
I don't have to try and try to stay high
I'm gonna keep on grinin'
