      About "Cost Of Livin'"

      Lyrics for Ronnie Dunn - "Cost Of Livin'"

      Everythin' to know about me
      Is written on this page
      A number you can reach me
      My social and my age

      Yes, I served in the army
      It's where I learned to shoot
      Eighteen months in the desert
      Pourin' sand out of my boots

      No, I've never been convicted of a crime
      I could start this job at any time

      I got a strong back, steel toes
      I rarely call in sick, a good truck
      What I don't know I catch on real quick
      I work weekends, if I have to, nights and holidays

      Give you forty and then some
      Whatever it takes
      Three dollars and change at the pump
      The cost of livin's high and goin' up

      I put Robert down as a reference
      He's known me all my life
      We attend the same church
      He introduced me to my wife

      I gave my last job everythin'
      Before it headed south
      Took the shoes off of my children's feet
      Food out of their mouths
      Yesterday my folks offered to help
      But they're barely gettin' by themselves

      I got a strong back, steel toes
      I rarely call in sick, a good truck
      What I don't know I catch on real quick
      I work weekends, if I have to, nights and holidays

      Give you forty and then some
      Whatever it takes
      Four dollars and change at the pump
      The cost of livin's high and goin' up

      I'm sure a hundred others have applied
      Rumor has it you're only takin' five

      I got a strong back, steel toes
      I'm handy with a wrench
      There's nothin' I can't drive
      Nothin' I can't fix

      I work sunup to sundown
      Ain't too proud to sweep the floors
      The bank has started callin'
      And the wolves are at my door

      Four dollars and change at the pump
      The cost of livin's high and goin' up
