Dolly Parton & Porter Wagoner We'll Get Ahead Someday lyrics

 

We'll get ahead someday

We'll get ahead someday

If the sun comes up

And we both cut down

We'll get ahead someday

 

Well I get up early an' work hard all day

Listen to the troubles of my friends

But I don't realize 'til I get home

What an awful shape we're in

 

The car's wore out

The kids need shoes

Got a bill from the doctor today

The landlord said you'll get out tomorrow

If you don't get me some pay

 

We'll get ahead someday

We'll get ahead someday

If the sun comes up

And we both cut down

We'll get ahead someday

 

The paper says there's a sale downtown

I gotta have some money today

Well there's things at home

That ain't never been used

You bought last bargain day

 

Well you go out on Saturday night

You spend too much money on wine

Well I work hard all week long

And I gotta have a little fun sometimes

 

We'll get ahead someday

We'll get ahead someday

If the sun comes up

And we both cut down

We'll get ahead someday
