That Old Friday Night Feeling

Drew James © 2005

 

My first job was at an Omaha meatpacking plant

They started me out on the swing shift

Just a bit above minimum wage

 

I remember at the end of my first full week

Smelling the ink on my paycheck

As I drove out the company gate

 

There’s was something fresh in the air

It ran like the wind through my hair

It lit up the sky like an independence day flare

 

It was that old Friday night feeling

Welling up inside of me

A feeling almost too good to believe in

Oh, my outlook gets back on the mend

When my baby’s waiting ‘round the bend

With that old Friday night feeling

It’ll carry us into the weekend

And the best part of my story comes at the end

 

After near ten years on the same loading dock

I noticed the shipments got fewer

And the layoffs were not far behind

 

After near six months on the unemployed line

I got a call at home from my foreman

Sayin’, “Drew, come on back to the job”

 

Last Monday I was back on the dock

Now it’s Friday and I just punched the clock

And there’s an old friend riding with me tonight in my truck

 

It’s that … (Chorus)

 

Now I’m coming around the bend

Down the block there’s a small piece of land

And there with my baby is where my story will end

 

With that …(Chorus)
