Thirteen Days
J.J. Cale Lyrics


Thirteen days on a gig in the south
Thirteen days on a gig in the South.
We've got enough dope to keep us all around
We've got two girls dancin' to bring in a crowd
A sound man to mix us, make us sound loud
Sometimes we make money, sometimes I don't know
There's thirteen days with five to go

There's Birmingham, Mobile, and up to Baton Rouge
We're smokin' cigarettes and reefer, drinkin' coffee and
booze
I saw the sun go down in Atlanta, come up in New Orleans
I got to know a waitress, I tried to get in her jeans
Sometimes we make money, sometimes I don't know
There's thirteen days with five to go

Migrant Worker is the name of this band
If we're ever in your town, come see us if you can
Yeah, we been to New Orleans, we been to New York
Some take to the magazines, some take to dope
Sometimes we make money, sometimes I don't know
Thirteen days with five to go

Thirteen days on a gig down south
We've got enough dope to keep us all high
We've got two girls dancin' to pick up the crowd
A sound man to fix us, make us sound loud
Sometimes we make money, sometimes we don't know
Thirteen days with five to go

Birmingham and, Mobile, north to Baton Rouge
smokin' cigarettes and reefer, drinkin' coffee and booze
See the sun come up in Georgia, go down in New Orleans
Never get to know a woman, 'cept to get in her jeans
Sometimes we make money, sometimes we don't know
Thirteen days with five to go

Migrant Worker is the name of this band
Well we're comin' to your town, come see us if you can
Well we've been to California, we been to New York
Some think we're good , to others it's a joke
Sometimes we make money, sometimes I don't know
Thirteen days with five to go

​@Peter Kuglstatter I agree it's life to go..There is a great Tom Petty cover of this song on you tube---he says five to go, but he also changes many of the other lines. I do believe JJ would care more about the rhythm and the guitar than getting the lyrics right.

I always heard the last line as "13 days with life to go".
