I'd like to get the words to this tune written by Corb Lund for his friend, the late Willie P. Bennett. I've watched the video, but I can't seem to get all the words. Thanks in advance.

There are several videos of this at YouTube. I made this transcription from Spotify.


IT'S HARD TO KEEP A WHITE SHIRT CLEAN
As sung by Corb Lund on "Losin' Lately Gambler" (2009)

Well, it's hard to keep a white shirt clean.
You boys likely know what I mean.
You live your life on the road, and that's how it goes.
It's hard to keep a white shirt clean.

Well, it's hard to keep a white shirt clean
When you're in the band a-makin' the scene.
You spend all your time in funky old dives.
It's hard to keep a white shirt clean.

Well, Willie P said he likes the crisp white lines.
Willie said the ladies like 'em too.
Said he used to travel with a board and an iron
Till his missus said: "You and me's through."

Well, it's hard to keep a white shirt clean.
You boys likely know what I mean.
Lipstick on the collar, a whoop and a holler.
It's hard to keep a white shirt clean.

Well, it's hard to keep a white shirt clean.
When it gets washed in with your jeans.
Half a cup o' bleach in with the sheets.
It's hard to keep a white shirt clean.

Well, Willie P said he likes the crisp white lines.
Willie said the ladies like 'em too.
Said he used to travel with a board and an iron
Till his missus said: "You and me's through."

Well, it's hard to keep a white shirt clean.
You boys likely know where I lean.
It's just a little beer; listen, dear:
It's hard to keep a white shirt clean.

Well, Willie P said he likes the crisp white lines.
Willie said the ladies like 'em too.
Said he used to travel with a board and an iron
Till his missus said: "You and me's through."

Well, it's hard to keep a white shirt clean.
You boys likely know what I mean.
You live your life on the road, and that's how it goes.
It's hard to keep a white shirt clean.

You spend all your time in funky old dives.
It's hard to keep a white shirt clean.
The old mare's mean, and horse shit's green.
It's hard to keep a white shirt clean.
