...on a steel horse I ride"

Anyhow, this song reminded me of work. We are cowboys. We work alone all day. They trust us with a $60,000 vehicle and a million dollars in freight. Its a great job.

Did I have too many Sammys on the ride home, or are there other songs that remind you of work?

(Lyrics by Bon Jovi!)

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by iron Butterfly the 18 minute version. It's good for the first 4 minutes and then becomes totaly redundant and oblivious the the rules around it. An exact U.P.S. moment in time !!!

An old song by Tennesee Ernie Ford- 16 Tons

Some people say a man is made out of mud
A poor man's made out of muscle and blood
Muscle and blood and skin and bones
A mind that's weak and a back that's strong

You load sixteen tons what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

I was born one morning when the sun didn't shine
I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
And the straw boss said well a bless my soul

You load sixteen tons what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

I was born one morning it was drizzling rain
Fighting and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in the canebreak by an old mama lion
Ain't no high tone woman make me walk the line

You load sixteen tons what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

If you see me coming better step aside
A lot of men didn't a lot of men died
One fist of iron the other of steel
If the right one don't get you then the left one will

You load sixteen tons what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

It's always been the great Sam Cooke song for me:

[Chorus:]
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang

All day long they work so hard
till the sun's comin' down
workin on the highways and biways
and wearin a frown

I hear them moanin' their lives away
and then you hear somebody say

[Chorus]

Hear someone sayin'
whoa I work, work so hard
See my woman, who I love so dear,
but I, I've got to work right here.

[Chorus]

My, my, my, my, I work so hard
Give me water, I'm thirsty
Whoa I, I work so hard

You hear them moanin' their lives away,
and then you hear somebody say

[Chorus 2x]

Tuff Enuff
The Fabulous Thunderbirds

I would walk ten miles on my hands and knees
Ain't no doubt about it baby it's you I aim to please
I'd wrestle with a lion and a grizzly bear
It's my life baby but I don't care

Ain't that tuff enuff
Ain't that tuff enuff
Ain't that tuff enuff
Ain't that tuff enuff

For you baby I would swim the sea
Nothing I'd do for you that's too tuff for me
I'd put out a burning building with a shovel and dirt
And not even worry about getting hurt

I'd work twenty four hours, seven days a week
Just so I could come home and kiss your cheek
I love you in the morning and I love you at noon
I love you in the night and take you to the moon

I'd lay in a pile of burning money that I've earned
and not even worry about getting burned
I'd climb the Empire State Building, fight Muhammad Ali
Just to have you baby close to me

I always said the Police song "Every Breath You Take" was the official UPS management theme song.



Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you.

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you.

Oh can't you see
You belong to me?
How my poor heart aches with every step you take.</font>

My favorite is one played on a classic country station here. I listen to the station once in a while for S#$ts and giggles.
I think it's by Merle Haggard,

"Been headed downhill-
like a snowball headed for hell".

also another one...

"dang me, dang me,
they otta take a rope
and hang me"

and the all time favorite by C.W. McCoy:

"CONVOY"

"...we ain't wrong, we ain't sorry and it's probably gonna happen again".

Reminds me of management.

Don't know title or author. Heard it on a country/western station while I was getting my car serviced.

The Prentender by Jackson Browne


I'm going to rent myself a house
In the shade of the freeway
I'm going to pack my lunch in the morning
And go to work each day
And when the evening rolls around
I'll go on home and lay my body down
And when the morning light comes streaming in
I'll get up and do it again
Amen
Say it again
Amen

I want to know what became of the changes
We waited for love to bring
Were they only the fitful dreams
Of some greater awakening
I've been aware of the time going by
They say in the end it's the wink of an eye
And when the morning light comes streaming in
You'll get up and do it again
Amen

Caught between the longing for love
And the struggle for the legal tender
Where the sirens sing and the church bells ring
And the junk man pounds his fender
Where the veterans dream of the fight
Fast asleep at the traffic light
And the children solemnly wait
For the ice cream vendor
Out into the cool of the evening
Strolls the Pretender
He knows that all his hopes and dreams
Begin and end there

Ah the laughter of the lovers
As they run through the night
Leaving nothing for the others
But to choose off and fight
And tear at the world with all their might
While the ships bearing their dreams
Sail out of sight

I'm going to find myself a girl
Who can show me what laughter means
And we'll fill in the missing colors
In each other's paint-by-number dreams
And then we'll put out dark glasses on
And we'll make love until our strength is gone
And when the morning light comes streaming in
We'll get up and do it again
Get it up again

I'm going to be a happy idiot
And struggle for the legal tender
Where the ads take aim and lay their claim
To the heart and the soul of the spender
And believe in whatever may lie
In those things that money can buy
Thought true love could have been a contender
Are you there?
Say a prayer for the Pretender
Who started out so young and strong
Only to surrender

(c) 1976 SWALLOW TURN MUSIC
