about

Digital jukeboxes suck.

lyrics

I cleaned out the change jar and all the big silver
Feeling a bit like an indian giver
B-24 maybe A-11
One coin at a time I'm going to heaven (?)

A tear drop did fall, I died some inside
Am I seeing things right, should I check my eyes
The sawdust is down on the empty floor
And the jukebox it doesn’t take quarters no more

What is this fresh hell that I’m living in
Is it punishment I know that I've sinned
I am not sure that I want to live in a world
With a jukebox that don’t take quarters no more

I complained to the barkeep, but she shut me down
Said she might listen if I bought a round
Shuffled out the door my foolish pride
And a pocket full of change, at least I tried

What is this fresh hell that I’m living in
Is it punishment I know that I've sinned
I am not sure that I want to live in a world
With a jukebox that don’t take quarters no more

Next week I might be eating chicken liver
I melted down all the big silver
Forty five caliber and quarter weight slugs
Hopped in my pickup and took a pull from the jug

I filled the jukebox full of quarters last night
Three dollars worth, I reloaded last night
Listen up all you women and men
The jukebox just started taking quarters again

What is this fresh hell that I’m living in
Is it punishment I know that I've sinned
I am not sure that I want to live in a world
With a jukebox that don’t take quarters no more
With a jukebox that don’t take quarters no more
