Lyrics

The Best Reward copyright 2012 Mike Lacey
Bag is packed, heading out again
Places that I'll wish that I'd never been
Making money already spent
Pile of bills to pay
Life's got a way of changing plans
So I go where the job demands
Working all the hours I can
Toward better days
Chorus
Don't much care for the dirty little motel rooms I've found
But since the factory closed can't make a living in our town
So work that's waiting on the road, is gonna see us through
And the best reward for being gone is coming home to you
Gotta be tough in troubled times
Ain't gonna let us fall behind
Keep the unemployment line
Out of my sight
All too soon 'nother goodbye kiss
Take a mental picture of what I'll miss
Been through plenty worse than this
It's gonna be all right
Chorus- Solo <2 bars>
Refrain
The beds are cold and food don't taste the same when I'm alone
And when I'm back, swear that I believe the kids have grown
But work that's waiting on the road, is gonna see us through
And the best reward for being gone is coming home to you
Yeah the best reward for being gone is coming home to you
