Livin' for the Weekend

Lucky Mud
Michael McKinney


I spent several years working at a small sawmill, catching cypress as it came off the saw blade. We got five minutes in the morning and five more in the afternoon as a break. That cold water and biscuit sure tasted good.


Early in the morning

It's already time to get up

You grab yourself a biscuit

And you get out in the yard

Early in the afternoon

You get a drink of water

Then it's back in the field

And it's back behind the plow


Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday, Friday

I will be here

Trying to make a living

On this sandy piece of land

Praying for the sun and rain

And praying for the weekend

Hanging on to what I've got

And doing all I can


But I'm living for the weekend

Living for the weekend

I can't wait 'til it's Friday night

I'll get myself a woman

And a big old glass of whiskey

And I will be dancing

'Til the morning light


Saturday and Sunday

Creep by like a bandit

The man on the news

Said everything'll be alright

'Long as we keep working

And spending all our money

Be careful not to talk back

And don't you ever fight
