TIG WIRED

Shutdown Blues

Welders weld, and the fitters fit

Riggers rig, that’s the gist of it

Foremen push their motley crews

Boys all wear the coveralls of blue

They rhythms set everybody knows the tune

Here comes the shutdown blues

Come-a-longs and chain falls too

Sparks they fly from the gouging crew,
Flag men calls to swing out the boom

Boys all wear the coveralls of blue,

The rhythms set everybody knows the tune

For the shutdown blues

I got a buddy who can sing the blues

He drives a Hog sports mean tattoos

If we were careful we could spring him loose

And let him take us where there ain’t no dues

Toxic gas and asbestos dust

The long hard hours is killin’ us

Super-heats and the re-heats too

The boys still wear the coveralls of blue

The rhythms set everybody knows the tune

For the shutdown blues

The steam chief grins ‘cause his job’s on time

Gonna see that unit go back online

Turn a profit in a day or two

And all the boys know just what to do

The rhythms set everybody knows the tune

For the shutdown blues

I paid a visit to the house of ruin

Been here before and it ain’t nothin’ new

I caught the sunrise from the room of blues

And headed back to meet my X ray crew

I could get wired I could get black and blue

I could go crazy by the time were through

But I caught the sunrise like I always do

And headed back to do this job for you.

The x ray crew is shootin’ welds all green

Erectors happy with his mean machine

The moneys good the hole watch through

Do you catch the feeling, you get the meaning to?

The rhythms set, everybody knows the tune

For the shut down here comes the shut down

Ohh the shutdown blues
