Sound Oysters – Poor, So Down lyrics

I lost another job again today
Now I won't have enough for rent to pay
My guitar and me will sing this corner block
Collect what people give until it's dark

Cause I'm,
Poor, so down and lonely
I'm, poor, so down and lonely
I'd give away my last dollar for a friend
Had I one to spend

I'll be drinking coffee grounds again this week
And cooking 'Johnny Cake' or something sweet
I like to celebrate around this time
I'll have a toast, or three, or maybe nine
I feel better not knowin' what's in store


Had a woman, she done left me long ago
I always see her face when times are low
I have myself, and no one else to blame
I turn my back, another bridge in flames
But it doesn't seem to matter anymore
