Track Name: The Jobsite Blues
The “Livin’ On The Job Site” Blues
Written by Tom Demarest July 1996 thru and beyond September 2000
A
There’s sawdust in my coffee, there’s drywall in my stew.

And “Yes dear, that is pipe glue on the toe of your new white shoe
D
There’s playdough on my skillsaw & the cat peed on my drill.
A
And tryin’ to read this code book is like pushin’ a rope uphill.
E D
I think I’m gettin’ the blues, a lousy dose of them blues, oh yeah,
E D A
Got the low down --- livin’ at the job site blues.

A
Whose idea was this really? Oh yeah the house was gettin’ small.

The square feet divided by the kids feet had our backs up against the wall.
D
I use to spend time fishin’. I remember that and smile
A
While we’re out on a date at Home Depot pickin’ out bathroom tile.
E D
I think I’m gettin’ the blues, a lousy dose of them blues, oh yeah,
E D A
Got the low down --- livin’ at the job site blues.

A
All my freinds and family ask me, and I know they are sincere.

So I’m gonna’ get a hat that says “NOT YET-ALMOST-MAYBE NEXT YEAR”
D
This job ain’t even over, I haven’t driven my last nail.
A
But the tax man‘s been at the door, and the bill is in the mail.
E D
I think I’m gettin’ the blues, plus I’m payin’ my dues, oh yeah,
E D
Got the low down --- livin’ at the job site....
E D
Gotta work quite cause it’s almost mid night....
E D E D A
Pickin out carpet’s gonna’ mean another big fight---The low down ......
