The good ones would love to be bad and the bad ones get away with it!

Guitars - Punch New 4 string CBG (rhythm) and Resolution (slide solo) 4 string Reso CBG
Drums - Roland TD-12 V-Drums
Bass - Hofner copy

I WISH I'D BEAT THAT BULLY
WISH I'D JUMPED THAT GIRL
WISH I'D NEVER LET MY LONG HAIR CURL

CHORUS - I ALWAYS DONE THE RIGHT THING
I NEVER COULD BE BOUGHT
I ALWAYS DONE THE RIGHT THING
I NEVER COULD BE BOUGHT
SOME FOLKS THEY DO THE WRONG THING...
BUT THEY NEVER GET CAUGHT!

I WISH I'D HIT THAT FOREMAN
WHEN HE WAS DISSIN' ME
I WISH I'D BEEN THE CLOWN THE TEACHER CAUGHT SMOKIN' UP A TREE

CHORUS

I WISH I'D BEEN A ROCK STAR
BUT I WOULD NEVER DARE
TO THROW A TV OUT THE WINDOW WITHOUT CHECKIN' NO ONE'S THERE

CHORUS

I WISH I'D DOWNED THAT WHISKY
I WISH I'D BEEN A DRUNK
I WISH I'D THROWN MY WEIGHT AROUND LIKE SOME GREAT BIG HUNK

CHORUS

I WISH I'D STOLE SOME MONEY
AND HITCH HIKED ROUND THE WORLD
I WISH I'D JOINED A ROCK'N'ROLL BAND AND LAID A THOUSAND GILS

CHORUS

Words and music copyright Steve Trowbridge October 2015
Song from forthcoming album "Some Blues from the Muddy River" to be released January 2016.
