Nick Lowe 36 Inches High Lyrics

Once I was a soldier
l rode on a big white horse
Silver pistols at my side
Carryin' the flags of war
And I Iost track of the men who fell
In the canon's roar
l never got over bein' a soldier
Once I was a tax man
Collectin' dollars and dimes
l heard the rich man grumble
I heard the poor man cry
Some few couldn't afford to pay
Were put to a shackle and key
l never got over bein' a tax man
Once I was a ruler
About twelve inches long
Three times me made a yardstick
36 inches high
36 inches high was l
36 inches high
i never got over 36 inches high
