Kenny Chesney singing about the monotony of shiftwork, and it still manages to end up a song about getting drunk in the Caribbean. Strait’s presence livens things up a bit, and the “big ol’ pile of shiiiiiftwork” wordplay in the chorus is funny. It doesn’t hold up much on repeated listenings, however.
If you’re looking for an interesting song on the same subject, check out the compelling Lori McKenna-penned “I’m Workin’”, on the latest Tim McGraw album. If you’re in the mood for yet another island song, then this is for you. Of course, if you fit the latter description, you probably already have the Chesney album this is pulled from.
