SLEEPY JOHN ESTES


Working Man Blues Lyrics

Now you done spent all my 1940 rent, woman, you done worked on my substitute (2)
Then if you don't wait 'til 1941, whoo babe, what in the world you gonna do?

Now, they oughta cut out so many trucks and tractors, white folks, you oughta work more mules and men
Now, you oughta cut out so many trucks and tractors, white folks, you oughta work more mules and men
[Bonds, spoken: Tell 'em about it, John!]
Then you know that would make, [Bonds: What?] whoo boy, money get thick again

Now when a man gets through gatherin', you know he's turned his stocks in the field
Now when a man gets through gatherin', you know he's turned his stocks in the field
He said go sell his corn and buy gas, whoo boys, put it in the automobile

Now I been studyin', I been wonderin', what make a man turn the ground in the wintertime?
Now I been studyin', I been wonderin', what make a man turn the ground in the wintertime?
You know, let the snow and rain rot the grass, whoo boy, that make fertilizer for the ground

Now, the government given us a school in Brownsville, boys, you know I think that's very nice
Now, the government given us a school in Brownsville, boys, you know I think that's very nice
You know the children can go in the daytime, whoo boy, the old folks have it at night
