The Jayhawks

The Jayhawks are an American alternative country and rock band that emerged from the Twin Cities music scene during the mid 1980s. Their country rock sound was influential on many bands who played the Twin Cities circuit during the 1980s and 1990s like Uncle Tupelo, The Gear Daddies and The Honeydogs. They have released several studio albums, including five on the American Recordings label. On hiatus from 2005 to 2009, the band has since reunited and released a new album, "Mockingbird Time," in September 2011. more »

He was only six years old
When that old killer died
Put him down in a great big hole
And I fill it up all the time

See the building rise into the sky
Parking meters, traffic cops
You best watch your record, son
They'll come and lock you up

And I've been working all night
I go on into the day
Ain't got much money now
Got the time ahead

You got the time ahead to pay
Smoke and lightning, dressed to kill
And don't talk to strangers
Girl take your pill

Forty years of sudden death
The acid rain is falling on my head
Bush raids on the rise
The doctor's working overtime

Too much of a good thing's not enough
Stepping stones, building blocks
And I've been working all night
I go on into the day

Ain't got much money now
Got the time ahead
You got the time ahead to pay
I've been working all night

I go long into the day
Ain't got much money
Got the time ahead
You got the time ahead to pay

'Cause I've been working all night
I go long into the day
Ain't got much money
Got the time ahead
You got the time ahead to pay
