lyrics

Minimum Wage
I work just like any other man I plow my fields I use my hands
I make a minimum wage sometimes it’s hard to say it
I fell in love with a mountain girl some people don’t wanna do ‘em
I ain’t been out of the state since two thousand and four

but it’s hardly a sin just to know that you are content
and hard as the wind i’ll be working

I make a minimum wage yes I go to work in the AM
I get off around four I might have a few beers then
then I get back to work i’m a man with his hands
then I come in after dark she’s lying biscuits in the pan

all I wanna do is stay on the this farm with you she’s in the kitchen i’m building a fire
I just wanna keep this love warm tonight look up and find the constellations
oh big dipper won’t you hold us tight cause soon my crops will be selling

but things ain’t so easy when you’re struggling my trucks breaking down and empty bank account
knocked my girl up things are falling apart my boss is pissed I keep showing up late
bills are piling up running out of fighting cause it’s the dying blood pumping my heart
it’s all I can do to not run outta gas it’s my worn out bones and my lack of rest

all I wanna do is stay on the this farm with you she’s in the kitchen i’m building a fire
cause I just wanna keep this love warm tonight look up and find the constellations
oh big dipper won’t you hold us tight cause soon my crops will be selling
and as the night falls around the one you love feels so good to be free feels so good to be loved and everything turns simple all again
with easy ways fall to grace trust the stars above to keep you in place and everything turns simple all again
where my rest lies is on your breast and my hearts lies on this countryside

Kip Bradley Tennessee

Kip Bradley writes and sings songs that evoke images of late-night highway drives under the Milky Way and making it into town just as dawn breaks. Just the kind of place where childhood dreams clash with adult realities.
