"12 Hour Days" as written by and George G Teren Wes Hightower....
My bills are paid, I've got some money saved
But It's been a week since I've seen my baby's face
Too much caffeine, and nicotine
Need a double shot of whiskey just to get to sleep
I can't complain, I just need to find a way
To break this chain of 12 hour days

I've worked down here, going on 10 years
But it's hard for me to call it a career
'cause it's hour by hour, and check to check
Everyday I have to earn the man's respect
I've heard him say there's lines of guys to take my place
Up on this string of 12 hour days

Chorus:
I can't slow down, I can't fall behind
Last thing I need is a place in the unemployment line

I've got needs, and I've still got dreams
But it's family that means the most to me
So I do my job, and when I can I rest
And I'll do better with what little time is left
I should give thanks, and be proud of the life I've made
So tonight I pray for more 12 hour days

Them long 12 hour days
