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
