BLUE COLLAR HAPPY HOUR

Well if you’re ever hangin’ round in the Nutmeg state, head on down for the shore.
Theres a tiny little place that leans to the right with a car grille over the door.
And for a couple of hours you’ll forget your sorrows and hear the finest music under the sun.
They got ice cold beer and a warm atmosphere so come on lets have us some fun.

W’ere talking ‘bout the Blue Collar Happy Hour, Talking ‘bout the Blue Collar Happy Hour.

Well the Honky Tonk Kind is sounding fine, the smell of BBQ in the air.
Musicians and friends all bucking the trends, spreading love for all to share.
You know we can’t “Two Step” like they do in Texas but w’ere damn sure gonna try.
So get up off of your seat and try to shuffle your feet, grab a partner and don’t be shy.

W’ere talking ‘bout the Blue Collar Happy Hour, Talking ‘bout the Blue Collar Happy Hour.

So start your weekend right on a Friday night, with something that’s good for the soul.
From the sweet melody of a pedal steel to some roots flavored rock and roll.
And for a couple of hours you’ll forget your sorrows and hear the finest music under the sun.
They got ice cold beer and a warm atmosphere so come on lets have us some fun.

W’ere talking ‘bout the Blue Collar Happy Hour, Talking ‘bout the Blue Collar Happy Hour.
