Brew City Blues

lyrics

I was going to get sober but there's too many bars
there's too many bars, there's too many bars
I was going to get sober but there's too many bars
in between where I work and where I live

lord have mercy I got the Milwaukee blues
I got the Milwaukee blues, I got the Milwaukee blues
lord have mercy I got the milwaukee blues
there's a bar on every corner hallelujah amen

if I had a car I would drive straight home
I would drive straight home, I would drive straight home
but I aint got no wheels and it's a long walk home
and there's so many bars along the way

guess I kinda like it and I shouldn't complain
I shouldn't complain, no I shouldn't complain
guess I kinda like it and I shouldn't complain
I go from bar to bar and they know my name

that's right, I like it and I aint complaining none
I aint complaining none, no I aint complain none
damn strait I like it and I aint complaining none
go from bar to bar and I have my fun

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
