"Thirteen Days" as written by and J. J. Cale....
Thirteen days on a gig in the south
Thirteen days on a gig in the South.
We've got enough dope to keep us all around
We've got two girls dancin' to bring in a crowd
A sound man to mix us, make us sound loud
Sometimes we make money, sometimes I don't know
There's thirteen days with five to go

There's Birmingham, Mobile, and up to Baton Rouge
We're smokin' cigarettes and reefer, drinkin' coffee and
booze
I saw the sun go down in Atlanta, come up in New Orleans
I got to know a waitress, I tried to get in her jeans
Sometimes we make money, sometimes I don't know
There's thirteen days with five to go

Migrant Worker is the name of this band
If we're ever in your town, come see us if you can
Yeah, we been to New Orleans, we been to New York
Some take to the magazines, some take to dope
Sometimes we make money, sometimes I don't know
Thirteen days with five to go

    General CommentCan't believe I had to add this song on here .. my favorite song by JJ Cale .. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers also have a good cover of it with slightly different lyrics

    Lyrics are pretty self explanatory thought
