well I been hangin' out of town lord in that low down rain
Watchin' good time Charlie friends is drivin' me insane
up on shady Charlotte Street,lord the green lights look red
Wish I was back home on the farm, lord in my feather bed.

Get myself a rockin' chair
To see if I can lose
these thin dime hard times
Hell on Church Street blues.

Found myself a picker friend, i read yesterday's news
Folded up page twenty-one and stuck it in my shoe
Gave me a nickle to the poor my good turn for the day
Folded up my old bill fold and threw it far away.

well I wish I had some guitar strings Old Black Diamond brand
I'd string up this old Martin box and go and join some band
But I guess I'll gonna stay right here and pick and sing a while
Try to make me a little change and give them folks a smile.
