1st Verse
Come on Buddy and buy me a beer
As of tonight one more year
Sailed right thru my day dreams, to my past
Lost some old friends and wasted my time
9 to 5 for nickels and dimes
Photographs and paychecks fade so fast

Well, I'm here to tell you
Tomorrow gonna get you
One thing you don't count on
Is you'll Survive.......

2nd Verse
I am the child of a US Marine
And a lady with Magazine dreams
They taught me that good guys always win
And I believed that it was true
Roses were red , and violets were blue
John Wayne kept us safe thru thick and thin


3rd Verse
So.....let me tell you there was a time
When I always remembered my lines
Each day looked like brand new Sunday Shoes
Can't quite figure, where losen begins
Still not sure that anyone wins
We all pay our human Union dues.............


great job, on this one, your vocalist has a great tone and kind of raspy enough feel to enjoy the delivery....

Very nice instrumental assortment and mix! I liked the quality of the singer's voice. The vocal to instrumental mix was just right. Very listenable.

laid back song with good words--and the truth

Good overall production and song.

This song have a good message! The vocals are very good. The production is excellent!!! Neat song, keep it up!!!

Well-crafted song, played, arranged and sung excellently. Vocal works great with the track. Dobro is a nice touch. Chorus is suitably catchy.

Nice reflective piece. Great instrumentation and arrangement.

Just a plain good un. Like the vocal, lyrics and the arrangement. Fine playing all around.

A very real sounding vocal presentation, brings out the essence of this song. Nice fiddle break also. Enjoyed the melody as the story unfolded.

A good subtitle might be Fifty-Year Old's birthday song. Creative idea and innovative approach to life and aging. I found it original and full of excellent easily related word pictures and images. My favorite "lady with magazine dreams" - excellent. Instrumentation and production pretty & flawless. Vocals were great, nice fiddle solo in the instrumental section. Extremely well done!
