Keep Your Distance
(Patty Loveless)


1990
On Down the Line
Tryin' to make a livin'
That's the bottom line
It ain't easy tryin' to stretch
A nickle into a dime
Sweatin' for the dollar
Workin' for the man
Half goes to the
Landlord, Lord
And half to Uncle Sam

I can't get no consolation
I don't get no paid vacation
I can't get no satisfaction
And my tractor don't get no traction
Just doin' the best I can
Tryin' to make a stand
Laughin' and cryin'
Livin' and dyin' on down the line

I'll leave my soul to Jesus
I'll give my heart to you
And if you want the rest of me
Well, darlin' you can have that too
Only love can save me
So darlin' don't be late
If I don't get your lovin' soon
I swear I'm gonna die today

I can't get no consolation
I don't get no paid vacation
I can't get satisfaction
And my tractor don't get no traction
Just doin' the best I can
Just tryin' to make a stand
Laughin' and cryin'
Livin' and dyin' on down the line

If I were a rich girl
It wouldn't be the same
I'd buy me a Cadillac
And then I'd change my name
A poor girls dream inside me
And you by my side
We drive into the sunset
Ride sweet baby ride

I can't get no consolation
I don't get no paid vacation
I can't get no satisfaction
And my tractor don't get no traction
Just doin' the best I can
Tryin' to make a stand
Laughin' and cryin'
Livin' and dyin' on down the line

On down the line
On down the line
On down the line
