Bobby Bare – Unemployment Line lyrics

In the unemployment line in the unemployment line
I see a butcher and a baker a faker and a quaker and an old girl friend of mine
There's white collars blue collars and no collars too talking bout the bad new times
And we all get together every Wednesday afternoon in the unemployment line
Now who do you think was there today talking bout food and rent
There was a hard hat a fat cat a girl from the laundromat and one ex-president
I raised my eyes and prayed to the Lord please save this world of mine
Then I turned around and I saw God standin' in the unemployment line
In the unemployment line in the unemployment line
Hey I'll see all of you in a week or two in the unemployment line
