V1

Outside in the parking lot of this hotel
It’s some kind of 18 wheel truck trailer hell
There’s a big cattle hauler stuck in the ditch
And the driver’s a hard drinking son of a bitch

CHORUS

And he wants to hear Waylon and Willie tonight
And if I stop playing he might start to fight
And if I can get through this Saturday night
I guess I’ll be doing alright
I guess I’ll be doing alright

V2

Well I stumbled into this time warp here
A sea of cheap beer and Stetsons and Maybelline stares
They’ve got dirt on their boots and girls on the brain
These truck driving cowboys will drive me insane

CHORUS

‘Cos they wanna hear Waylon and Willie tonight
And if I stop playing they might start to fight
And if I can get through this Saturday night
I guess I’ll be doing alright
I guess I’ll be doing alright

BRIDGE

Now there’s only one thing pulling me through
All the time that I’m singing I’m thinking of you
I’ve been gone too long but I’ll be back real soon
And I can’t wait to get you alone

V3

This town is a nightmare, this bar is a zoo
But I need the money, what else can I do?
I was born with this curse that I can’t quite explain
And I just might go end it all under a train…

CHORUS

‘Cos they wanna hear Waylon and Willie tonight
And if I stop playing they might start to fight
And if I can get through this Saturday night
I guess I’ll be doing alright
I guess I’ll be doing alright
I guess I’ll be doing alright
