Song Description

After playing blues rock and boogie in many clubs and venues this song has remained our concert opener because of the toe tapping beat and percussive acoustic guitar rhythm with carefree lyrics indicative of the lifestyle of the traveling performer

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this fun little dity in 1972 with my rock band BOLT performing this piece to dance audiences. It has been in acoustic performance since 1998 and recently recorded with Jackalope Records. CD project still in production.

Lyrics

UNION DUES
Chorus:
I don't pay no union dues, I don't pay no rent.
By the time I get my check my money is already spent.
Verse 1.
My old lady, she comes to my gigs
ya know I just love her so. She spends it all without a second thought but that's just part of the show.
Bridge:
Oou, lord have mercy on me.
Woah, Everyone says I'm out of my tree.
Chorus;
Lead break;
acapella chorus;
Verse 2.
Ya know it's true what they say about this kind of life.
My old man tried to tell me to work and take a wife.
But, I know better what's right for me, keep your layer fees.
All I need is this here guitar.
Keep your color TV.
Bridge:
Oou, Lord have mercy on me.
Woah, everyone says I'm out of my tree.
Chorus repeat X2
My money's already spent x4 and out.
