Six of One, Half a Dozen (of The Other) - Joe Nichols

I do my best to play by the rules
I bend a couple even break a few
Don't get me wrong I wanna do her right
I just can't seem to live a virtuous life
Headaches by the bottle, heartaches by the number
Six of one, half a dozen of the other

I fell in love with a preacher's daughter
They washed my soul in the Holy Water
I gave her my heart and bought her a house
The devil broke in and he pulled me out
Now I owe the bank some money and I lost another lover
Six of one, half a dozen of the other

No matter how you add it up, it's always the same
I give it my best and all I get's the blame
I'm living and loving and barely breaking even
Can't be me, must be the company I'm keeping, yeah

I went on out and made some brand new friends
Started my life all over again
Now some of them are saints and some of them are sinners
I'm still searching a way to be a winner
I roll boxcars one way or the other
Six of one, half a dozen of the other

No matter how you add it up, it's always the same
I give it my best and all I get's the blame
I'm living and loving and barely breaking even
Can't be me, must be the company I'm keeping

I roll boxcars one way or the other
Six of one, half a dozen of the other
Six of one, half a dozen of the other

Half dozen of the other

I roll boxcars one way or the other
Six of one, half a dozen of the other
