Lyrics

LOW DOWN ON MY LUCK<br />
<br />
<br />
If a ticket round the world<br />
Cost a quarter,<br />
I couldn&rsquo;t get across<br />
My hometown border.<br />
Had me a woman, but I<br />
Couldn&rsquo;t afford her;<br />
These times are leaner and<br />
Meaner than me.<br />
These times are leaner and<br />
Meaner than me.<br />
<br />
Work-place drama, daily commute,<br />
Time and a half, American dream.<br />
Time bomb trauma, life won&rsquo;t compute.<br />
You used to laugh, now you just scream.<br />
<br />
Another day, another dollar,<br />
Minimum wage and blue collar.<br />
What can I say, my life&rsquo;s a bust.<br />
I used to rage; now I just rust.<br />
<br />
If a ticket round the world<br />
Cost a quarter,<br />
I couldn&rsquo;t get across<br />
My hometown border.<br />
Had me a woman, but I<br />
Couldn&rsquo;t afford her;<br />
These times are leaner and<br />
Meaner than me.<br />
These times are leaner and<br />
Meaner than me.<br />
<br />
Down on the farm, it&rsquo;s no better;<br />
You plant your hours, wait for the buds.<br />
You mean no harm, still a debtor.<br />
It used to shower; now it just floods.<br />
<br />
Another day, another dollar,<br />
Minimum wage and blue collar.<br />
What can I say, my life&rsquo;s a bust.<br />
I used to rage; now I just rust.<br />
<br />
If a ticket round the world<br />
Cost a quarter,<br />
I couldn&rsquo;t get across<br />
My hometown border.<br />
Had me a woman, but I<br />
Couldn&rsquo;t afford her;<br />
These times are leaner and<br />
Meaner than me.<br />
These times are leaner and<br />
Meaner than me.<br />
<br />
