lyrics

Darden Smith / Group

I know better than to volunteer
That’s the kind of thinking that got me here
Now I sit around and drink too much beer
I know better than to volunteer
I know better than to volunteer

I just wanted to get out of town
Go see the world and write it down
I found a new family we went through the dust
But the people there didn’t like us
Yeah the people there didn’t like us

I know better than to volunteer
That’s the kind of thinking that got me here
Now I sit around and drink too much beer
I know better than to volunteer
I know better than to volunteer

It’s not all that it’s cracked up to be
I’m volun-told government property
But I learned a few things about me
I’m stronger then even I could see
I’m stronger then even I could see

I think about tomorrow and way back then
It’s not about me it was all about them
It’s not about me it still about them

I know better than to volunteer
Yeah that’s the kind of thinking that got me here
Now I sit around and drink too much beer
Yeah I know better than to volunteer
I know better than to volunteer
I know better than to volunteer
I know better than to volunteer
I know better than to volunteer
