Lyrics

[Chorus]

I like playing in the band, I'll take the boom, I'll take the bust
Heaven on earth to me is three chords and a cloud of dust

I've played the Mississippi River St. Cloud down to New Orleans
Mardi Gras, Kentucky Derby and damn near everywhere between
Living on that joyful noise, no guarantee and half the door
Somehow it all seems worthwhile when I've got a full dance floor

[Chorus]

If there's such a thing as fate, did I ever have a choice?
Something's made me need to sing ever since I found my voice
And all that money I ain't made, it might buy Graceland once or twice
I guess the bottom line is when you work for love it's worth the price

[Chorus]

So here's to all the working stiffs playing in a band tonight
All the good and all the bad and all of those who think they might
Don't forget that tips and glory isn't all you're working for
You've always got that joyful noise, no guarantee and half the door

[Chorus]
