ON DOWN THE LINE

TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING,
THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE
NOW IT AIN'T EASY TRYING TO STRETCH
A NICKEL INTO A DIME,
SWEATING FOR THE DOLLAR
WORKING FOR THE MAN,
HALF GOES TO THE LANDLORD
AND HALF TO UNCLE SAM,

I CAN'T GET NO CONSOLATION
I DON'T GET NO PAID VACATION,
I CAN'T GET NO SATISFACTION
AND MY TRACTOR DON'T GET NO TRACTION,
JUST DOING THE BEST I CAN
JUST TRYING TO MAKE A STAND,
LAUGHING AND CRYING,
LIVING AND DYING ON DOWN THE LINE.

I LEAVE MY SOUL TO JESUS,
I GIVE MY HEART TO YOU,
IF YOU WANT THE REST OF ME
WELL DARLING YOU CAN HAVE IT,TOO
ONLY LOVE CAN SAVE ME
SO DARLING DON'T DELAY,
IF I DON'T GET YOUR LOVING SOON
I SWEAR I'M GONNA DIE TODAY,

I CAN'T GET...

IF I WERE A RICH GIRL
IT WOULDN'T BE THE SAME,
I'D BUY ME A CADILLAC
AND THEN I'D CHANGE MY NAME
A POOR GIRL'S DREAM INSIDE ME
AND YOU BY MY SIDE,
DRIVE INTO THE SUNSET,
RIDE SWEET BABY,RIDE,
I CAN'T GET.
