Lyrics
Chasing Away the Blues Copyright 2009
Mike Lacey

Daddy used to sit and tell me, son
Loosen up, and have you some fun
You never know what tomorrow brings
Start your motor up and let 'er run


Took his advice and shed the chains
Hit the tavern where they know my name
Play the jukebox, shoot some pool
Nothing fancy but it keeps me sane

Chorus
Gonna live for today, like it this way
Work like a dog ten hours a day
Go out at night, party and play, chasin' away the blues

Feeling frisky heading down the street
Bars are hoppin', girls so sweet
Belly up and get me a drink
Scout around for someone to meet

I don't need to find Miss Right
If Miss Willing's here in sight
It's been a long, hot, dirty day
A little company would make my night


Chorus-Solo

Now I'm living by a simple plan
Makes it easier to understand
Just the basic wants and needs
Count my blessings I'm a simple man

Chorus
[Yeah, try to keep trouble outta my way, . . chasin' away the blues]
