lyrics

It was early in the morning
I was almost out the door
Got a call from my bossman
He said, "I cannot use you no more"
I got the Washington County
My factory done shut down blues
There ain't no good news
I got the Mississippi flatland blues
I went out to Boeing
I thought I'd be flying high
But they closed down and sold the parts
And left me high and dry
I got a job at Vlasic
Puttin' pickles in a jar
But they shut down and GMAC
Came and took my car
Cocaine took my fella
The banker took my home
The streets have got my children
And I'm sitting here alone
I'm so blue and downhearted
I've almost lost my will
I've even thought of suicide
But I ain't fit to kill
If the C & G makes enough money
To fix there worn-out track
I'm gonna hop a freight train
I swear I ain't never coming back
