Arlo Guthrie – Unemployment Line lyrics

Words and music by Robb (Rabbitt) Mackay

Now there's a new craze a-goin' 'round
It's gettin' bigger in most every town
From New York City out to Hollywood
Got everybody in the neighborhood

Chorus:
Down in the unemployment line
You got yourself a place and I got mine
We been here waitin' since the clock struck nine
Down in the unemployment line

Now every day you've got to fight the horde
Just to read what's on the bulletin board
When you go back and try and claim your space
Some other sucker come and stole your place

Chorus

I hope the people in the government
Tell us how we're gonna pay the rent
How we're gonna get enough to eat
No that the workin' man is obsolete

If things keep goin' like they seem they do
Won't be long before they're down here too
And they can be a part of this here mob
Workin' nine to five to find a job

Chorus
