Lyrics

Me Time
Words & Music © Grant Maloy Smith

Farmer's hours
every day
Digging holes
doesn't pay
throw a little smile my way
Spread it around

Sixty-four through Tennessee
Little Rock on sixty-three
Choctaw beer is calling me
Honky-tonk bound

It's me time
I finally got some free time
Yeah, me time
You gotta let me be time
It's me time
For just a while

Punching cows
Chasing hogs
Running fence
and chopping logs
Shelterbelts tip the odds
Lord, what a sight

So clear the decks
and close the blinds
Cut the bait
and pull the lines
I'm fixing to do every kind
of nothing I can find

It's me time
I finally got some free time
Yeah, me time
You gotta let me be time
It's me time
For just a while
