lyrics

Another week in the mines counting time on the road outside of town
Too many early morning and late nights, cars passing at the speed of sound
Heat on the highway, blacktop roles with no shade for a hundred miles
Threw off that old sweat stained shirt for a Thursday out on the tiles
Starting the truck when from the porch that shout starts to leak
That girls may look good on a Friday night but how ‘bout the rest of the week

With her on your side your turning heads when you just want a shot and a beer
Thought you had cash, tried your card, but that damn thing just won’t clear
She had a little fun shopping online and a Tuesday out with the girls
Job didn’t work out cleaning your account with rounds of Rusty Nails with a twirl
Kicking in your door at 1am, work’s calling while you’re trying to sleep
That girl may look good on a Friday night but how ‘bout the rest of the week

Rubbing your eyes and buttoning your shirt, pulses knocking at the side of your brain
Gotta get ready for another turn sweating it out in the mundane
Six months out from winning your pride when you sent her headed for the trees
Stone cold lonely cowboy running with a brand-new pack of thieves
When you’re outta money honey don’t come running with your good old time mystique
That girl may look good on a Friday night but how ‘bout the rest of the week

Thought you’d come around in that short black dress working your old technique
That girl may look good on a Friday night but how ‘bout the rest of the week
