lyrics

Me Time

Farmers hours everyday
Digging holes doesn’t pay
Throw a little smile my way
Spread it around

64 through Tennessee
Little Rock on 63
Choctaw beer is calling me
Honky-tonk bound

It’s me time
I finally got some free time
Yeah me time
You gotta let me be time
It’s me time
For just a while

Punching cows
Chasing hogs
Running fence and
Chopping logs
Shelterbelts to tip the odds
Lord, what a sight

So clear the decks and
Close the blinds
Cut the bait and pull the lines
I’m fixing to do
every kind of nothing I can find

Chorus
