Chris Stapleton – Minimum Wage Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
I was born the country, raised in the town
My daddy was a drunk, never was around
I bide my time and I rattle my cage
And it ain’t easy, baby
It ain’t easy, baby
Tryin’ to make a living on minimum wage

[Verse 2]
[?], quarter to 3
A skinny pole-dancer was laughin’ at me
She said, “Hey man, you can kiss my ass”
It ain’t easy, baby
It ain’t easy, baby
Tryin’ to make a living on minimum wage

[Chorus]
When you receive it
You can’t conceive it
Can you believe it?
Where’d all the money go?
Oh, I just don’t know

[Verse 3]
Well, we hit the liquor store around midnight
Ridin’ ’round high with 99
Ridin’ shotgun with a 12-gauge
It ain’t easy, baby
It ain’t easy, baby
Tryin’ to make a living on minimum wage
Tryin’ to make a living on minimum wage

[Chorus]
When you receive it
You can’t conceive it
Can you believe it?
Where’d all the money go?
Oh, I just don’t know
