Got empty pockets
And old shoes
Got a threadbare coat
Got the unemployment blues
Where are all the factories?
I can’t make it if I’m making
Fast food deliveries.
Got a nice clean record
I can’t deliver any place
Been knocking on doors
See them slamming in my face
Don’t want no state clerk lookin down on me
I’d rather spend my last dollar
Bettin on the lottery
Don’t want to serve their drinks
Don’t want to operate their slots
Don’t want to clean their rooms
Bag groceries at the Save a Lot
Good paying jobs are going overseas
Can’t make a decent living
In the tourist industry.
