West Coast Cash, East Coast Truck
(Special thanks to an East Coast legend, Mr. Sam Moon)

Always been stressed, stuggled with money
Heading to an answer called the “Tar Sands” honey
It’s gonna hurt like hell to leave my family and friends
But like they say, time waits for no woman or man

It’s been the steel plant days since my feet been on the ground
But like Lennie said, a piece of paper cut that down
Spinning my wheels, one step ahead, two behind
And I’ll break my back, to bring back some peace of mind

Heading out there to big sky town,
Where the earth is all burnt, it’s a big hole in the ground
Tough road I know, but there’s been worse I’ve gone down
Heading out there where it’s hurts to breathe,
believe you me, there’s a hundred reasons to leave
Tough road I know, but there’s been worse I’ve gone down
and I’m not going down

My wife will miss me, but just for 21 days
Friends and family to make sure she’s okay
Or maybe she’ll pack up her things and head out here too
’cause lord knows there’s lots of work here, yes friend, even for you

When my three weeks are up I’ll be home for one
Making up for lost time, and loving never done
and see the grass is sometimes greener on the other side of that fence
And I won’t forget where I came from, or why I went

Heading out there to big sky town,
Where the earth is all burnt, it’s a big hole in the ground
Tough road I know, but there’s been worse I’ve gone down
Heading out there where it’s hurts to breathe,
believe you me, there’s a million reasons to leave
Tough road I know, but there’s been worse I’ve gone down
‘Cause I’m not going down
