Six Bucks A Day
(Bob Frank)

I've been ramblin' out
Montana way
Tryin' to live
on a cow punchers pay
Been changin' them dams
In the new summer hay
Irrigating alfalfa
For 6 bucks a day

I'll tell you my story
I'd be on my way
But the savings are slow to come
On 6 bucks a day

Out here in the fields
While the water runs down
With the sun high above me
And the sky all around
I'm dreamin' my dreams
Of the Canada line
And the places I'd go
If the money was mine


Come Saturday night
Well you draw out some pay
Then you go into town
Just to throw it away
And when the end of the month
Comes rolling your way
Well you ain't got much left
On 6 bucks a day


Now if I drew out my time
And I paid off my debts
I couldn't get to Great Falls
On what I have left
But I've got me no choice
When them diesel horns blow
Come a wind from the highway
I got to pack up and go

Yeah money or none at all
They can't hold me this way
For my blankets are rolled and tied
And I'm leavin' today
