lyrics

Alki Boy Blues
written by Phil Hummer

yesterday is over today has begun
tomorrow ain't worth nothing cause it never comes
nobody loves me nobody cares
I'm gonna get my straight razor and cut off all my hair
no ones gonna know me with my bald shiny head
so i put on my nightshirt and climb into bed
I'm gonna wake up in the morning
i shall be a changed man
i'm gonna need a bottle of whiskey to remember who i am
then i put on my guitar and i'm singing for the man
i'm gonna get all unruly and get thrown in the can
i'm back in the lockup i'm back out on the line
swinging my hammer i'm doing my time
i'm building my muscles on three squares a day
i'm a bad motherfucker so you get out of my way
they let me out a little but early my behavior it was good
when the whiskey aint in me i'm doing like i should
but the cycle starts over when I'm back out on the street
and i climb inside every bottle that i meet
so goes the story i'm just like my dad
just another little alki boy born to be sad
