Six of One, Half a Dozen (Of the Other) Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I do my best to play by the rules
I've bend a couple even break a few
Don't get me wrong, I wanna do it right
I just can't seem to live the virtuous life

Headaches by the bottle, heartaches by the numbers
Six of one, half a dozen of the other

I fell in love with a preacher's daughter
They washed my soul in the holy water
I gave her my heart and bought her a house
The devil broke in, he broke me out

Now I owe the bank some money and I lost another lover
Six of one, half a dozen of the other

No matter how you add it up, it's always the same
I give it my best and all I get is blame
I'm livin', I'm lovin' and barely breakin' even
Can't be me, must be the company I'm keepin', yeah

I went all out and made some brand new friends
Started my life all over again
Now some of them are saints and some of them are sinners
I'm still searchin' for a way to be a winner

I roll boxcars one way or another
Six of one, half a dozen of the other

No matter how you add it up, it's always the same
I give it my best and all I get is blame
I'm livin', I'm lovin' and barely breakin' even
Can't be me, must be the company I'm keepin'

I roll boxcars one way or the other
Six of one, half a dozen of the other
Six of one, half a dozen of the other

Half a dozen of the other
I roll boxcars one way or the other
Six of one, half a dozen of the other
