about

Originating in the early 2000's, reworked over the years, still sounds weird, but I love me that vocal!

lyrics

Don't mistake me for the latest thing
i don't do imitations of the king
but I ain't no kind of newcomer here
i've been underneith this rock for years

And it's a long weird road and it sure ain't soft
and you gotta be tough and plucky
and i'm a beat up dog with my ears chewed off
but I answer to the name of lucky

Don't confuse me with somebody hip
i'm the loosest cannon on this ship
and if you asked me how I got in this mess
i'd have to say just lucky I guess

And it's a long weird road and I never saw the face
of the driver of the truck that struck me
and i'm a beat up dog with my tail in a brace
but I answer to the name of Lucky

And if I knew the reason why
i wouldn't be in this place
the way they treat the help around here
is a lowdown doggone dirty disgrace

Don't go selling me no miracle cure
i've had all the comfort I can endure
but if you're buyin here's a deal you can't beat
a busted rainbow that i'm letting go cheap
