Chickenfoot – Three And A Half Letters lyrics

I'm 37 years old
Married to my childhood sweetheart
Two beautiful girls, two and a half and four
Worked nine years at the plant where my father worked
And his father before him
I have a B. A. But laid off seven months ago
It's been hard tough so many others
But I still believe
Can you help, brother?
Can you help?

I need a job
I need a job
I'm willing to work
But I need a job

I stand in the street
With a sign in my hand
But I need the work
I need a job, yeah

I just returned from Afghanistan
Spent four years in the military service
I'm 24, strong and I can't find work in my hometown
I'm married with one beautiful son
Seven months old today
Never had a chance to buy a home
Can't afford the apartment we've been living in
Moving in with Debbie's parents, whose home is now in foreclosure
Can you help?

I need a job
I need a job
I'm willing to work
But I need a job

I stand in the street
With a sign in my hand
I'm willing to work
But I need a job

I'm sorry this letter is hand-written but I don't have a computer
I don't have access to one
I'm 51 years old
I lost my wife to breast cancer three years ago
Lost my job of 26 years one year later
I'm homeless with no one to turn to
I've been through a lot, bother
I heard you like to help people
Well, I need help

I need a job
I need a job
I'm willing to work
But I need a job

I stand in the street
With a sign in my hand
I'm willing to work
But I need a job

Got nothin' left
Lost it all
Can I get back to zero
Zero, zero, zero, zero, zero
I need a job

Yeah, I need a job
I need a job

And the last letter said:
I'm nine years old and homeless.
Fuck!

    The economy is in the toilet. This business of manipulating numbers just to make certain people look good is not reality. The reality is people are losing everything. I could not find work in my home city & had to leave my home of 29 years, family & friends to find work in another city. Second, we the people need to take care of out vets. The system that is in place is not working. I know this for a fact. It takes way too long to go through all the steps the government has imposed & the vets can't wait, because of financial obligations.
