lyrics

All I know, I own my soul
The devil don't pay like he used to
That pressure pin just holds it in
Still I ain't got nothin' prove-
I do what I'm gonna do

I make some big decisions and some big mistakes
I know you can't make a living if you ain't getting paid
So when I meet the good lord, gonna ask him for a raise
gonna buy a round for Jesus and Skip James

I know I'll find plenty of time
To get my heavy rest
I'm always given the choice for livin'
The life I love the best

I make some big decisions and some big mistakes
I know you can't make a living if you ain't getting paid
So when I meet the good lord, gonna ask him for a raise
gonna buy a round for Jesus and Skip James

In light of day or dark of night
I keep my eyes open wide
And no change in the weather
Is ever gonna break my stride

I make some big decisions and some big mistakes
I know you can't make a living if you ain't getting paid
So when I meet the good lord, gonna ask him for a raise
gonna buy a round for Jesus and Skip James
