A cruisin' down Main Street in an '87 Chevrolet
A rollin' down 174 tryin' to find some more
I wish I had a little money I'd spend it all on you
I'd buy us a quarter bag and a 12-pack of brew

And we'll get high
And I drink
Well I'm tryin' not to think
And I get stoned
And I'm drunk
Well I'm tryin' to change my luck
Just gettin' by
Well I'm a gettin' by, gettin' high yeah

A walkin' down Brown's Mountain tryin' to find my way around
I hope I don't get stopped by the cops in this here town
We head on to the south side in the cemetery trails
A worn out fishin' hole where I raised a lot of hell

And I get high
And I drink
Well I'm tryin' not to think
And I get stoned
And I'm drunk
Well I'm tryin' to change my luck
Just gettin' by
Well I'm a gettin' by, gettin' high yeah

There's a girl that lives on my street
Strawberry blonde, she tastes so sweet
I want to tell her all the words of my heart
She moved away, then she tore my world apart

And I get high
And I drink
Well I'm tryin' not to think
And I get stoned
And I'm drunk
Well I'm tryin' to change my luck
Just gettin' by
Well I'm a gettin' by, gettin' high yeah

Fifteen minutes south of the Fort Worth city lights
We watch football games here on Friday nights
I grew up slow and now I'm livin' so fast
Runnin' out of liquor and this quarter bag won't last

'Cause I get high
And I drink
Well I'm tryin' not to think
And I get stoned
And I'm drunk
Well I'm tryin' to change my luck
Just gettin' by
Well I'm a gettin' by, gettin' high

Well I get high
And I drink
Well I'm tryin' not to think
And I get stoned
And I'm drunk
Well I'm tryin' to change my luck
Just gettin' by
Well I'm a gettin' by, gettin' high yeah
