hard shoulder lyrics – mark knopfler

i’ve got latches for windows
handles for doors
grinders and scr*pers
and sanders for floors

rake for the gravel
chains for the snow
always got the shovel
you never know
i never thought you’d go

man’s broken down
man’s broken down
on the slip road
got a slip load
and it’s a hard
shoulder to cry on

hacksaws and hammers
brushes and mop
and i’ve got the ladders
up on the top

if something needs doing
i always say
you want it done
the proper way
i need you to stay

man’s broken down
man’s broken down
on the slip road
got a slip load
and it’s a hard
shoulder to cry on

give me a minute
we’ll be going again
sound as a bell
right as rain
right as rain

and it’s a hard
shoulder to cry on
to cry on
