Cigarette ashes
And tickets to free dances
And a buck bottle of wine
Under a minute of my time
I'll give you all that I can, son... It may be less than I have, son
Don't break the ties that border us, son. Don't waste my time
You're no son of mine

I've got so many errands to run, son
Fraternize with poker buddies and their cash, son
I spent the better part of my life singing you stupid lullabies
And handcuffed tight behind my back under your mother's watchful eye
God rest her soul
And God bless a wasted life

    General CommentThis sounds like another estranged-father-and-son tune from the Utters. Kinda like a precursor to "Bitter Old Son" by (Utters ofshoot)The Filthy Thieving Bastards.
    I'm guessing Corey Koski had some dad problems. Great song!

    General CommentThis song makes me so sad. What the dads saying is just so horribly insulting. I can't imagine what that must feel like, having a dad that feels he wasted his life because of you.
