Assembly Of Dust – Telling Sue lyrics
I was workin real hard in a gravel yard
When I came across a silver coin
You know it wasn't that much but I tried my luck because I'd had enough of being employed

Mama mama don't worry long for me
I''m a man and I must find my way
Mama mama can you tell Sue for me
If I stayed here I'd die in a working man's grave

Well I was dead flat broke and that wasn''t no joke
'cause I was swimming in a pile of debt
But I have to admit that when I up and quit
I pulled an iron shackle from my neck

Well it's been some years and I've grown a beard
And I've taken to the life I lead
When I think of the past the thinkin' doesn't last
I have everything I ever need

When I turned to leave I heard the pit boss scream
"Son you know you'll never return"
Well I didn''t say a word I just flipped him the bird
And that's the last of me that he saw
