Jim Dandy

Soakin’ dungarees,

Achin’ drawl-bone knees,

Dry throat,

Threadbare, shredbare coat.

Cotton-chopper blues

Payin’ devil’s dustbowl blues.

Bankman’s got my keys,

Papers sayin’ he owns my trees;

Brave woman cryin’

How can I stop tryin’ ?

Fightin’ devil-dustbowl blues,

Payin’ cotton chopper dues.
