Lyrics

I'm a vintage guitar in an alligator case
Left down in the basement underneath the staircase
I'm a bottle of wine all musty and dusty with age
I'm an old bordeaux, I'm a double "O", I'm a cabernet.

I'm a '57 Chevy driving a minivan
I'm a bottle of whiskey stuck inside a beer can
I'm a '47 Knucklehead changing up all my plans
I'm a '57 Chevy, doing the best I can.

Been out of work for a year but I'm making it through
My wife still has a job, but these days it takes two
Been chasing classifieds and doing interviews
But nobody's hiring, so I just pick up any gig I can do.

I'm a '47 Martin my Uncle Chris left me
If it wasn't for that guitar, who knows where I'd be
So now I'm singing for a living, while I'm laid off from the factory
I'm a '57 Chevy, So come on take a ride with me.

Been out of work for a year but I'm making it through
My wife still has a job, but these days it takes two
So I've been chasing classifieds and doing interviews
But nobody's hiring, so I just pick up any gig I can do.

I'm a '57 Chevy driving a minivan
I'm a bottle of whiskey, stuck inside a beer can
I'm a '47 Knucklehead changing up all my plans
I'm a '57 Chevy doing the best I can
I'm a '47 Martin and I'm a playing in the band
I'm a '57 Chevy, doing the best I can.
