Lyrics

It’s a Livin It ain't No Life
Written by Jimmy Whiffen / Tyler Whelan © 2011 (SOCAN)

Verse 1
Truckin’ down highway forty-five there’s a traffic jam
And I’m calmin’ my nerves with a half burned cigarette
Broken down diesel flashing lights weren’t a part of my plan
And the sign up ahead says you ain’t going’ home yet

Chorus
It’s a livin’ but it ain’t no life
Make a little money, I’m runnin’ all night
There ain’t no glory but I’m doin’ what’s right
It’s a livin’ but it ain’t no life
It’s a livin’ but it ain’t no life

Verse 2
Another road side diner ain’t had a good meal in thirty days
There’s a family of four with a little girl sittin’ on her daddy’s knee
And I get to thinkin’ there’s something better comin’ my way
Cause I’m as cold and lonely as the plate in front of me

Chorus
It’s a livin’ but it ain’t no life
Make a little money, I’m runnin’ all night
There ain’t no glory but I’m doin’ what’s right
It’s a livin’ but it ain’t no life
It’s a livin’ but it ain’t no life

Bridge
Future only goes so far as my headlights shinin’
Freedom is out there somewhere if I just keep on drivin’

Tag
Truckin’ down highway forty-five I’m getting there
And I’m calmin’ my nerves with a half burned cigarette

Chorus X 2
