Lyrics

There's not a job in this town

That I haven't done

Been a barback a bouncer

I've had me some fun

 

I've parked cars at the hotel

Sold dope on the side

Been a liftie pumped gas

Manned the grill at Slopeside

 

I've cleared snow off of roofs

Driven cabs and cleaned stalls

That job I quit

Thought I'd seen it all

 

I've played covers at the Pub

At Chaps and The Cabin

If I was going to have made it

It would have already happened

 

So pour me a whiskey

Pour me a shot

Give me a beer

It's all that I've got

On this cold winter night

In this half-empty bar

Keep the drinks coming

Here's the key to my car

 

I've been a ranch hand a salesman

A fly fishing guide

Driven Cats on the mountain

Made corduroy at night

 

I've sold tickets at the movie house

And cleaned up the aisle

I've even mined coal

At Twenty Mile

 

I've built homes in the summer

For rich folks to live in

Two or three weeks

Of any given ski season

 

And when they all come in

They think they own the town

I've been here nine years

I'm settling down

 

So pour me a whiskey

Pour me a shot

Give me a beer

It's all that I've got

On this cold winter night

In this half-empty bar

I once had a true love

But she left in March
