Chad Cooke Band – Life Behind Bars Lyrics

[Verse 1]
He said what’s your name first timer? Everybody here just calls me joe
Yeah and I’ve been here 33 long years, seen a lot of faces come and go
Been a crutch, been a priest, a punching bag, a referee, anything you gotta be to play the part
That’s just life behind bars

[Chorus]
Crackin’ jokes and crackin’ beers
Knowin’ who and who ain’t here
When it’s last call and the wife calls, just say “Nah girl I ain’t seen him”
Out of tune cover bands, Sweet Home Alabam’
And all this damn second hand, man
It’s a wonder I’m still breathin’
Doin’ what you gotta do to fill that jar
That’s just life behind bars

[Verse 2]
I said that gold band in your pocket
You best put it right back on your hand
‘Cause that family I seen in your wallet
Is worth more than any one night stand
Yeah, that’s why I’m here where I am

[Chorus]
Crackin’ jokes and crackin’ beers
Knowin’ who and who ain’t here
When it’s last call and the wife calls, just say “Nah girl I ain’t seen him”
Out of tune cover bands, Sweet Home Alabam’
And all this damn second hand, man
It’s a wonder I’m still breathin’
Doin’ what you gotta do to fill that jar
That’s just life behind bars

[Bridge]
That’s life behind bars, yeah

[Chorus 2]
Crackin’ jokes and crackin’ beers
Knowin’ who and who ain’t here
When it’s last call and the wife calls, just say “Nah girl I ain’t seen him”
Out of tune cover bands, 20 minute Free Bird jams
And all this damn second hand, man
It’s a wonder I’m still breathin’
Doin’ what you gotta do to fill that jar
Yeah man the first night in this joint’s the hardest part
That’s just life behind bars

[Outro]
He said what’s your name first timer?
Everybody here just calls me joe
