Corned Beef City

This song is by Mark Knopfler and appears on the album Privateering (2012).

Early in the morning
Gonna meet a man
Wants a truck unloaded for cash-in-hand
Don't ask questions
When there's nothing in the bank
Gotta feed the kids and put the diesel in the tank

Bacon, egg and sausage
Double chips and beans
Tea and bread and butter and a day on the machines
Christmas is coming
With the final demand
So what you got going for cash-in-hand?

So it ain't too pretty
Corned beef city
It ain't too pretty
Corned beef city

Early in the morning
Where the trucks all stand
I've got a pocketful of foldin'
And a pair of jerry cans
Gotta keep it going
They're layin' off at Ford
I'm only one step ahead
Of my room and board

So it ain't too pretty
Corned beef city
It ain't too pretty
Corned beef city
Corned beef city!

Early in the morning
Gonna meet a man
Wants a truck unloaded for cash-in-hand
Don't ask questions
When there's nothing in the bank
Gotta feed the kids and put the diesel in the tank

'Cause it ain't too pretty
Corned beef city
It ain't too pretty
Corned beef city
