Can’t pay the Rent! (copyright November 12, 2013)

Can’t pay the Rent!  (copyright November 12, 2013)

 

Can’t pay the rent..where did my money went?

 

Gotta learn how to play the guitar..dance on the hood of my car.

 

Can’t pay the rent!  Can’t pay the rent!

 

Don’t tell the boss..look at those dents.

 

The old 96..it needs a fix!

Working every day..any which way..

 

Get’n up every morning..where did the day went?

 

Can’t pay the rent!  Can’t pay the rent!

Can’t pay the rent!  Can’t pay the rent!

 

It’ll get better..soon you’ll see..

On my way to Tennessee, on  my way to Tennessee!

 

First to Memphis..on to Nashville..

It’s my country, the good Ol’ US of A!

 

On to Knoxville and Chattanooga..looking at the countryside..stoppin’ at South Pittsburgh..the foundry’s hot as charcoal..

Dutch ovens, skillets..smelling the sweet smell of cinnamon rolls.

 

The morning is here, the morning is here back on I-75.

 

Can’t pay the rent!  Can’t pay the rent!

Can’t pay the rent!  Can’t pay the rent!

 

Working everyday..the week is gone..

Working everyday..the week is spent..

 

Getting’ on top of the hood..on top of the car..

Gonna sing, gonna shout my dreams!!

Gonna take me far!!

 

The string on my new guitar..they’re taught..

They’re tuned..we’re gonna go far.

 

Driving down I-75..the day just started..

I feel alive!!

 

Keeping it between the lines..headlights are on..

Radio tunes..the number one hits..on the dial..

We’re driving down I-75 for  a while.

 

The Georgia line..it’s getting close..it’s almost here.

Gonna take a break..have some cheer.

 

Our country, the US of A..our intentions were great..how’d we become a world embarrassment?

 

Can’t pay the rent!  Can’t pay the rent!

Can’t pay the rent!  Can’t pay the rent!

 

Citizens out of work..looking for a job..the congress..they talk the speak..they are so weak.

 

Not knowing what to do…for the Red, White & Blue..yet they boast what’s right for me and you!!
