Lyrics

Just Too Tired To Sleep © Kurt Griesemer

You might think after ten long years of breathing dust and choking fumes
Working hard to bring it home to the kids and me and you
We're just another small town family with some simple family needs
But when I get home you know I'm just too tired to sleep.

There's pressure, making diamonds, out of coal deep in the ground
And that's the way I feel every time I hear the bosses put me down
I wake up at the crack of dawn when it's still to dark to see
But when I get home you know I'm just too tired to sleep.

__
Chorus
I can't shut my days out of my night times
I close my eyes and see my way ahead
I don't mind working hard no that's all right with me
But when I get home you know I'm just too tired to sleep.
--

Something's gotta give, I've had all that I can take
Like a soldier in a bunker man you know I just cant catch a break
And my smile keep's getting thinner, it used to come so easily
But when I get home you know I'm just too tired to sleep.
--
Chorus

Every woman and every man has to work for what they get
I've been around a long long time and I ain't never seen it yet.
Where the lemonade springs up from the ground and the money grows on trees
But when I get home you know I'm just too tired to sleep..
