Story

Halley cracked up her car several years ago - yeah there really was a case of beer in the trunk - and she had to be removed from it with the Jaws of Life.  It inspired the first verse, then Halley and Tom got to thinking of other things they're grateful for...

Lyrics

MERCY

Halley DeVestern/Tom Heinig

IT WAS FRIDAY NIGHT, THE 3RD OF JULY
THAT LONELY ROAD WAS ANYTHING BUT DRY
THE CASE OF BEER I HAD IN MY TRUNK
WAS SMASHED TO HELL, MADE THE SUMMER NIGHT DRUNK
THEN WHEN THE MORNING SUN KISSED OPEN MY EYES
AND I REALIZED I WAS STILL ALIVE, I WHISPERED...

MERCY
OH LORD, THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME ONE MORE DAY

WOKE UP THINKIN' BAD THOUGHTS 'BOUT THE MORTGAGE MAN
BUT MAYBE HE'S JUST DOIN' A JOB JUST LIKE I AM
WORK HERE ALL DAY, BUT THE COFFEE'S FREE
AND I GET TO SLEEP INDOORS AN EAT SPAGHETTI

MERCY
OH LORD, THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME ONE MORE DAY

FEEL IT COMIN' - SEE IT NOWHERE
COULD BE ANYWHERE, COULD BE SOMEWHERE
MAYBE SOMEONE HAS A PLAN FOR ME
BUT I WANNA SEE

HAD A DREAM LAST NIGHT WITH KIDS AND A WIFE
DRIVING PAST GREEN FIELDS, IN A DIFFERENT LIFE
AND I WOKE UP CRYING...

THEN I TOOK THE BUS

MERCY
OH LORD, THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME ONE MORE DAY
