Ain’t no work

461868430_7ea5a0333e2

I’m tired of standing
In the unemployment line
A job would get me
Out of this hard time
But there ain’t no work lord
Ain’t no work in Tennessee
Been out of work so long
Them budget cuts are bleedin me.

Texas Utah Alabama
North Dakota,south Dakota Indiana
California Florida kentucky
Texas Michigan, Mississippi
There ain’t no work lord
Ain’t no work in Ohio
Been looking for employment
Since the record hit a low.

There ain’t no work lord
Ain’t no work in Tennessee
Been out of work so long
Budget cuts are bleeding me

Repeat chorus

You wouldn’t want to live
In these unemployed shoes
Lord knows i paid my share
To pay this country’s dues..
Already sold my house
And the car is up for sale
This working man just go his
Long time budget cut to hell

Repeat chorus 2 x’s

1983
