​Lucky Break

This song is by The Bottle Rockets and appears on the album Blue Sky (2003).

I took a little fall, snapped one of my bones
Now I ain't at work, no, now I'm here at home
A guy like me don't get many lucky breaks
So when he gets a good one, he grabs all he can take
I fell down so here I lay
Got the workman's comp so everything's okay

Can't do nothing for myself, my baby's upset
Says if I don't get better she's gonna break my neck
But I'm sleeping in late, I just say what the heck
This is my dream come true, doin' nothing gettin' a check

I fell down so here I lay
Got the workman's comp so everything's okay

Somebody else to put the sheetrock up
Somebody else from the working class
Somebody else to get up at dawn
Everybody else, you just kiss my ass

I'm just day to day guy, got no retirement plan
Working till my body gives out, a small town laborin' man
I got lucky this time with the right diamond joe
If this had happened last month, no compensation, no dough

I fell down so here I lay
Got the workman's comp so everything's okay
I fell down so here I lay
Got the workman's comp so everything's okay
I fell down so here I lay
Got the workman's comp so everything's okay
