You know I'm goin' to the welfare
Ask them can they help me some?
You know I'm goin' to the welfare
Lord, Lord, Lord
Ask them can they help me some?

This ninety day strike been so long
It 'bout to get the best a-me

Lord, my wife and my children
Lord, they cry both night and day
Lord, my wife and my children
Lord, they cry both night and day

This doggone strike soon gonna end
I don't see how I can last much longer

You know it's been ninety days
Ninety days, ninety days
People and I sure don't see no end

It's been ninety days, already
It's been ninety days, been ninety days
Are over and I sure don't see no end

My wife and my baby, my baby
Lord, they grieve, cry over me
Lord have mercy
Daddy, what in the world you gonna do?
