      About "That'll Get You Ten"

      Lyrics for Jeff Bates - "That'll Get You Ten"

      Just two years an' seven days
      Between me an' legal age
      Just one clerk in that liquor store
      Between me an' that front door

      My coat had deep pockets
      An' he probably had a gun
      Well, I reckon he was watchin' 'cause he said
      "Son, that'll get you one"

      "One year pickin' up trash on the highway
      One phone call to hear your momma's heartbreak
      If you think it's worth it, don't let me stop you, son
      Cause that'll get you one"

      She had a beer in her hand, she was comin' on strong
      An' I was just this close to takin' her home
      Things were lookin' good when we left that bar
      Till she stopped an' said, "That's my car"

      That's when I saw the sticker
      That said, 'Franklin County High'
      Well, I didn't even kiss the girl goodbye
      Cause that'll get you five

      Five years bustin' up rocks on the chain gang
      Pound in' and a bang straight plates in the same sink
      Wonderin' if I'm ever gonna make it out alive

      An' those tan breaks might get me thinkin' 'bout a jailbreak
      Askin' my mom to slip a file in my bun cake
      Those bloodhounds'd probably haul me back in
      An' that's another ten

      Boss man climbin' down my back
      Won't cut me one inch of slack
      'Tween that steel beam an' the ground below
      It'd be a nasty fall if the wind should blow

      I don't see a witness an' we're up here awful high
      If he should lose his balance
      He might not survive
      But that'd get you life

      Pumpin' that iron with the boys on the cell-block
      Tyin' my soap to a rope so it don't drop
      An' some ol' boy thinks my biceps look nice

      Writin' to the governor an' beggin' for a pardon
      Thinkin', "That's how Merle Haggard got started"
      Swappin' cigarettes for momma's apple pie

      Lookin' through the glass an' talkin' to my lawyer
      Memorizing Moby Dick an' Tom Sawyer
      Tellin' the parole board, I learned wrong from right
      Yeah, that'd get you life, yeah, that'd get you life
