From the recording Lonesome Road

Lyrics

You know there was a time way back along the line
Was like I lived my life without a care
But heartbreak heartache upsets and bad breaks
Caused me to drift away from there

It’s beer cans and quarters
Dropping quarters in the jukebox
And filling my mug with pilsners and porters
And if you’re feeling bad for the man at the bar
Who just can’t afford it
Just know all I’ve got in this whole world
Are beer cans and quarters

One night in a fit, I was lit
I called her from a payphone to tell her my mind
I walked back to the shooting star, they wouldn’t serve me there no more
I woke up the next morning behind bars

It’s beer cans and quarters
Dropping trash in a plastic bag
Along with pilsner cans and porters
And if you’re feeling bad for the man on the freeway
Picking up your litter
Just know all I’ve got in this whole world
Are beer cans and quarters

So I left that old town behind along with the booze and a weary mind
And drove my two door Colt to Santa Fe
Then hitchhiked further west once that old wreck was laid to rest
And made my new home in sunny LA

It’s beer cans and quarters
Dropping quarters in my pocket and scrapping what I can
From pilsner cans and porters
And if you’re feeling bad for the man at tahe beach
With a metal detector
Just know all I’ve got in this whole world
Are beer cans and quarters

It’s beer cans and quarters
I’ve had heartbreak heartache
Upsets and bad breaks
And if you’re feeling bad for the man whose
Living his dream out on the water
Just know all I want from this whole world
Are beer cans and quarters
