I’m gonna point this old Wrangler North; cause it’s the only way things will look up
Gonna tetris pack from front to back; won’t even need a pickup truck
My jobs a joke; hell I’m broke. All I can afford to do is sit and stare
I’ll be living lean; brining only what I need; in the middle of I don’t care
Gonna find a clearing by a lake deep in the woods where all I can hear is Loons
Got to clear my mind which will take some time; good thing that I brought me my booze
That shine she burns a hotter than embers in that fire; Time alone for me has always been rare

Well, why’d I leave; why am I doing what I please; cause she’s a mean old grizzly bear
I pointed this old Wrangler North; cause it’s the only way things could look up
But you gotta have skills; why I couldn’t pay the bills; and now it seems that I’m stuck
So the wife’s always right gotta turn tail and run and get a frying pan upside the dome
The mosquitos sure bite, these tent quarters are tight; come on Evan just bring us on home
