Blowin' Smoke

Album: Same Trailer Different Park (2013)
  • Between the lunch and dinner rush
    Kelly caught that outbound bus for Vegas
    We're all out here talking trash, making bets
    Lips wrapped round our cigarettes
    She always thought she was too good to be a waitress

    Well,
    we all say that we'll quit someday
    When our ship comes in, we'll just sail away

    But we're just blowin' smoke
    Hey yeah
    We're just blowin' smoke
    Hey yeah
    Out here goin' broke
    Hey yeah
    Yeah we're just blowin'
    Smoke

    Well Janie got divorced again
    Her ex-husband's in the pen
    From two to five, five to ten and longer
    Brenda's traded smokes for cake, still hadn't lost that baby weight
    And that baby's about to graduate, from college

    I'm just flicking ash
    Into the tray
    Tell them both it'll be okay

    But I'm just blowin' smoke
    Hey yeah
    I'm just blowin' smoke
    Hey yeah, hey yeah
    I'm out here goin' broke
    Hey yeah
    Yeah we're just blowin' smoke

    We all say that we'll
    Quit someday
    When our nerves ain't shot
    And our hands don't shake, yeah
    We all say that we'll
    Quit someday
    When our nerves ain't shot
    And our hands don't shake

    Wipe down the bar, take out the trash
    Light one up and count my cash
    Swear I'm never coming back again

    I'm just blowin' smoke
    Hey yeah
    I'm just blowin' smoke
    Hey yeah
    Out here going broke
    Hey yeah
    Yeah we're just blowin'
