Midnight Sun

Album: The Ultimate Hits (2007)
  • Ain't no hay left on the ground
    Gonna join the sun in sitting down
    My last bale and well my tail is dragging
    Cotton shirt, Cotton mouth
    Cold ones waiting at the house
    It's time for me to get down off the wagon

    Chorus 1:
    Hose me down and dress me up
    Fire up that old pickup truck
    Out the gate and let them horses run
    A jukebox and swinging doors
    Soft and pretties on a hardwood floor
    A cowboy's work just ain't never done
    In the land of the midnight sun

    Find a looker, have her hold my keys
    And tell her later we'll be needing these
    Grab a cold one, turn it upside down
    To that honky tonkin' sound

    Chorus 2:
    Hose me down and dress me up
    Fire up that old pickup truck
    Out the gate and let them horses run
    'Cause eight o' clock comes twice a day
    And either way you'll find me chasing strays
    A cowboy's work just ain't never done
    In the land of the midnight sun

    Shoot the breeze while shooting pool
    Dance 'til you're sweating like a rented mule
    Getting loud with all my cowboy friends
    The party never ends

    Chorus 3:
    Hose me down and dress me up
    Fire up that old pickup truck
    Out the gate and let them horses run
    Looky there who waits for me
    Smiling sweetly, holding up my keys
    A cowboy's work just ain't never done
    In the land of the midnight sun
    In the land of the midnight sun Writer/s: PHILIP ALLEN BROWN
