From the recording Night-shift Blues

This song is a leftover piece from the "Goin Over" era. Joe wrote this song while he was working from 12 midnight down to 8 in the morning, during his stay at New Jersey Transit. Only those who have worked these hours will truely understand the plight!


Dark sky starts the day
Takin shit to make pay
Grab coffee on the way
Eight hours in darknes stay

White crystal brings me up
Green leaf brings me down
I've become a ghost
back in my home town

I sleep in sunlight
body don't feel so right
get to see morning sun
day ending and begun

Baby asks "where is dad?"
relationship is turning bad
Wife leaves this life of mine
Mow must work more overtime
