Listen up and I'll tell you what you'll do
Forget about music and alcohol too
Forget about your baby
We got other work for you

Better drink yer glasses empty now
It's time to rise and shine
There's one less cause in the world
To be leaving for

It was back in 39
When I was one year old
Sitting by the backyard fence
And the world had turned so cold

Drink yer glasses empty now
Was all that they were told

Drink yer glasses empty now
It's time to hit the sky
To the tune of thunder
There's no time to wonder why

We'd love to take life over that is plain
Forget about sorrow, forget about pain
And watch a John Wayne movie
To remind us once again

Better drink yer glasses empty now
It's time to hit the line
You got one less cause in the world
To be leaving for

Drink yer glasses girls and boys
It's time to hit the sky
To the tune of thunder
There's a tear in every eye

I'd like to take things one at a time
Forget about reason, forget about rhyme
Because beg, steal or borrow
You got another hill to climb

So drink yer glasses empty now
It's time to hit the road
There's one less cause in the world
To be leaving for

Drink yer glasses girls and boys
It's time to hit the sky
To the tune of thunder
There's no time to wonder why

We'd like to take life over again
When time of war had passed away into the rain
And watch a John Wayne movie
To remind us of the plains

Just drink yer glasses empty now
It's time to rise and shine
There's one less cause in the world
To be leaving for

Listen up and I'll tell you what is true
They done some thinking and they changed a thing or two
You been living in the hindsight
Of a backwards point of view

So drink yer glasses empty now
It's time to hit the road
There's one less cause in the world
To be leaving for
