Lyrics

Dollar Beer Blues

Written By: Common Nuisance

I got a little story and parts of it are true
if you're gonna go out drinking better watch what you say (revised to: With a little folding money and a frosty mug)
dollar beers can make a mess out of you

one night i went out drinking at a new place it was just like a zoo
i was feeling ten feet tall but i was heading for a fall
dollar beers can make a mess out of you

i couldn't keep my mouth shut i got a pretty girl to buy me a beer
when her boyfriend came back he said you'd better get out now
but i was feeling no fear

like a fool i stayed a little longer got no one but myself to thank
i turned aside and couldn't see that's when he sucker punched me
and i woke up in the county tank

This Jesus

Written By: Common Nuisance


you called me an infidel because i'm not devout
you didn't even say good bye when you walked out

and who is this jesus that you quote?
wasn't it just something someone wrote
to bless the poor and set the captives free
to heal the sick and help the blind to see

never could do anything right for you
only made you mad
you only love what takes your fear away
you only make me sad

and who is this jesus that you quote?
wasn't it just something someone wrote
to bless the poor and set the captives free
to heal the sick and help the blind to see

i don't believe in heaven
if there was one it wouldn't be for you
just like there is no hell for me
although you think it's true

and who is this jesus that you quote?
wasn't it just something someone wrote
go read your book again and you will see
jesus would hang out with bums like me
