Here Comes A Regular

This song is by Captain Tractor and appears on the album North Of The Yellowhead (2005).

Well a person can work up
A mean, mean thirst
After a hard day of nothing much at all
Summer's passed
It's too late to cut the grass
Ain't much to rake anyway in the fall

Sometimes I just ain't in the mood
To take my place in back with the loudmouths
Like a picture on the fridge
That's never stocked with food
Used to live at home
Now I stay at the house

Everybody wants to be special here
They call your name out loud and clear

Here comes a regular
Call out your name
Here comes a regular
Am I the only one here today?

Well a drinking buddy that's bound to another town
Once the police made you go away
Even if you're in the arms of someone's baby now
I take a great big whiskey to ya anyway

Everybody wants to be someone's here
Someone's gonna show up, never fear

Here comes a regular
Call out your name
Here comes a regular
Am I the only one who feels ashamed?

Well, kneeling alongside old sad eyes
He says, "opportunity knocks once
And the door slams shut"
And all I know is I'm sick of everything
That my money can buy
A fool will waste his life
God rest his guts

First the lights and the collar goes up
And the wind begins to blow
Turn your back on a pay-it-back last call
First the glass then the leaves that pass
Comes the snow
Ain't much to rake anyway in the fall

And everybody wants to be special here
They call your name out loud and clear

Here comes a regular
Call out your name
Here comes a regular
Am I the only one here today?
Am I the only one who feels ashamed?
