lyrics

Well I collect my paycheck when the time is done
and before I know it, it’s been spent and gone
and I can barely find time to mow my own damn lawn
yeah the kid is growin, the wife is bored
tryin to plan a trip to the nearest shore
sometimes it feels like all they get is ignored
and I just got canned today
pulled me into their office and I heard them say

go off and do what you’re gonna do
(don’t come around here)
yeah we don’t got room for people like you
(don’t come around here)

and I don’t care if you’re wife gets pissed
don’t care if you can’t pay the rent
yeah, you’re never gonna come back here again
don’t come around here

I spent all my summers on my daddy’s farm
out in the fields scratchin up my arms
guess I thought I learned about workin’ hard
all the guys he hired could barely speak
but they worked their ass off 6 days a week
just like they found where they needed to be
and one July they were gone
the border man showed up and blew his alarm

go off and do what you’re gonna do
(don’t come around here)
yeah we don’t got room for people like you
(don’t come around here)

and I don’t care if your country’s shit
don’t care if you can’t feed the kids
yeah, you’re never gonna come back here again
don’t come around here

Right before it hit me in the dead of night
I was climbin’ the stairs up to heaven’s lights
and that goddamn driver drunk outta his mind

stood in line for days up at heaven’s gates
with the rich, the wise, the fed up, depraved
all just prayin’ that we’d all be saved

and when I finally saw God’s face
he looked me in the eye and said you’ve made some mistakes

go off and do what you’re gonna do
(don’t come around here)
yeah we don’t got room for people like you
(don’t come around here)

and I don’t care if the devil's sick
don’t care if you can’t make a mends
yeah, you’re never gonna come back here again
don’t come around here
