The High Cost of Low Livin'
Lyrics
The High Cost of Low Livin'

I'm spending Monday's money on Saturday night
I'm feelin' loose, though my finances are tight
Hey, Bartender can you fill it to the brim
Just as soon as I get back from the ATM

Chorus:
The high cost of low livin' aint' getting' me down
As long as there's cold beer, hot country music and good friends around
If I blow all my money, that's okay
I'm never broke, I 'm just between paydays
The high cost of low livin' ain't getting me down

Don't pay my rent on time 'cause they just start to expect it
Ain't paid on my car since the night I wrecked it
I make all my deposits in a jukebox slot
My spirits keep risin' though my bank account's not

Chorus:
The high cost of low livin' aint' getting' me down
As long as there's cold beer, hot country music and good friends around
If I blow all my money, I won't sweat it
Just run me a tab so I can build my credit
The high cost of low livin' ain't getting me down

Bridge:
This wild life might lead me to an early grave
But that's all right
Just think of the money I'll save

Chorus:
The high cost of low livin' aint' getting' me down
As long as there's cold beer, hot country music and good friends around
If I blow all my money, I won't sweat it
Just run me a tab so I can build my credit
The high cost of low livin' ain't getting me down
