Lyrics

Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

When my feet get tired and my knees get weak
My eyes get blurry, my tongue can’t speak
Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

My heart gets shakin’, I just can’t stop
My back is breakin’, I’m ready to drop
Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

You drive on my face and you squealin’ the tires
Ain’t no holiday and I’ll never retire
Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

I got rusty bones, I got skeleton teeth
I got clackety clack all underneath
Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

Clackety clack, don’t talk back
Clackety clack, don’t talk back
Clackety clack, don’t talk back
Clackety clack, don’t talk back

Friends, sinners, speeders, and slow drivers
I would tell you it’s nice to see you this afternoon, okay, but I would be lying
Listen here, you don’t have to burn it at every turn, okay
And I been muckin’ around this slimy lurch and I been tryin’ real hard not to get bitter, but I must, I must, I must be honest here (say it)
My level is disturbed, my back breaks fifteen times a day
My oil pressure is risin’, honey, and I don’t feel like compromisin’!
But here we are, here we are again and I stand here and you ask me to take you over once again, you ask me to take you across, take you across, take you across
Well, here I am and we’ve come too far to turn back now, we’ve come too far to turn back now

We’ve come too far to turn back now, we’ve come too far to turn back now, we’ve come too far to turn back now, we’ve come too far to turn back now, we’ve come too far to turn back now, we’ve come too far to turn back now, we’ve come too far to turn back now

I’m givin’ up the ghost
Givin’ up the ghost
Givin’ up the ghost
Givin’ up the ghost
Givin’ up the ghost
I’m givin’ up the ghost
I’m givin’ up the ghost
I’m givin’ up the ghost

I’m givin’ up the ghost
