Call My Brother
By: American Anodyne

Well I’ve got me a job, nothing fancy
I’ve it since I left high school
Always pay my taxes on time
And I send my kids to school
I go to church on Sunday
Try to live by the golden rule
But sometimes I do unto others
Like I’m a golden fool
To tell the truth I don’t mean no harm
But sometimes my restless bone
Starts itchin’ and kickin’ and pokin’ and proddin’
And I’ve got to leave my home
I head on down to the watering hole
And when you hear me start to complain
If you know what’s good for you
You’ll stay out of my way

I might get drunk tonight, get in a fight
Til I hear the cops in route
Get ‘em up off their lazy asses
It’ll do ‘em some good to get out
At the end of the day in a town this size
There ain’t too much to shout about
I might just get drunk tonight
And call my brother to bail me out

Well my wife
Bless her gentle soul
She cured me of most of my wicked ways
Done her best to saved my soul
But here lately she says
It’s getting pretty old
I’m tired of praying every Sunday
To get you out of Saturday’s hole
Well I say listen woman
Don’t you worry ‘bout me
Cause ever since you had me saved
Me and Jesus are tight you see
All my sins got left in the river
And washed right out to sea
St. Peter ain’t got no problems
He ain’t got no dirt on me

Chorus, repeat chorus
