Lyrics

WHLFWWNB
Empty eyes in vacant faces echo what the years can do. Years of hard work or no work at all. Living in some rundown charity hall. And you started out so young and strong. Willing to bump heads and take them all on. Confident that even with some battles lost you'd never lose

You got those workin' hard lookin' for work, workin' nowhere blues. Runnin' round this sad old towns worn the pavement right through your shoes. Well my land lady say that she wants the rent, but I'm feeling kinda funny 'cause the rents all spent. I got those workin' hard looking for work workin' nowhere blues.

Well I rise up in the mornin' turn my bedding in, funny how security diminishes with it. Grab a free towel and scrub my self down put on my cleanest dirties and head downtown and I shake a lot of cold hands. Give 'em all my name. But no mater how I fill in all the forms the answers always the same.

You got those workin' hard lookin' for work, workin' nowhere blues. Runnin' round this sad old towns worn the pavement right through your shoes. Well my baby cries 'cause she wants to go out. But the way my momma bug me make me wanna scream and shot. We got those workin' hard looking for work workin' nowhere blues.

Well you finally land a job from an interview that you don't even remember that you had. You've done a couple weeks, maybe four, the layoff comes and you're first for the door. You got those workin' hard looking for work workin' nowhere blues.

(instrumental)

You got those workin' hard lookin' for work, workin' nowhere blues. Runnin' round this sad old towns worn the pavement right through your shoes. Well the banker says they gonna tow my car away. I sold my car just the other day. I got those workin' hard looking for work workin' nowhere blues.
