Well I guess that I’m a loser

No matter how hard I try

I keep dodgin’, swervin’, slinkin’

Can’t find no place to hide

I got a woman and three kids

Two jobs both at a time

I try to make a go of it

Try to toe the line

Hell on wheels

Keeps rollin’ after me

Hell on wheels

Rollin’ over me

 

Thinkin’ bout relenting

‘Bout throwing in the towel

I say to life, «I’ll beat you,

Just watch, I’m gonna show you how»

I start fixin’ up the house

It starts to look just fine

It Makes my wife so happy

We even make love twice

Next day I go to work

The boss is full of praise

He says «You’ve earned promotion

And along with it a raise»

I’m driving home from work now

Feelin’ pretty satisfied

Then they announce on radio

A hurricane tonight

Hell on wheels

Keeps rollin’ after me

Hell on wheels

Rollin’ over me

 

I board up all the windows

Beggin’ Lord for mercy

Next morning lays our lil’ home

10 feet under the sea

The place where I was working

Is all torn down

The boss he’s been leaving

Nowhere to be found

Hell on wheels

Keeps rollin’ after me

Hell on wheels

Rollin’ over me
