Night Shift - Bill Morrissey

    The bar was packed for a Tuesday night
    the Bruins were on TV
    everybody in the place was tight
    make no exception for me
    I've been drinking to my traveling days
    I should have been at work long ago
    but tonight I'm just not coming in
    tonight I just can't go

    I should be making shoes on the night shift but
    I can't drive in through the snow drifts
    that's what I told them at the factory
    I wonder how the boys on the night shift
    ever got along without me

    Well the guys I work with are lifers here
    they talk shotguns and TV
    they can call me names in French or English
    and they do it frequently
    and their wives, they don't smile much
    but their hearts are made of gold
    they run their families but make it look
    like they do what they are told

    [Repeat Chorus]

    So bartender pour me another shot
    and back it with a beer
    tonight I am thanking heaven
    I can still get out of here
    because for a while I thought I could settle down
    then I called my own bluff
    well the road gets longer as I get older
    but live still got the stuff

    [Repeat Chorus]
