Drive-By Truckers – Get Downtown lyrics
Kim said, "Jimmy, you better get yourself
Op off of that raggedy couch
I'm too pretty to work and I'm tired
Of you uglying up my house"

Jimmy said, "Baby, the guys at the top
Are doing bad as the guys on the street"
Kim said, "The guys at the top ain't about
To be paying alimony to me"

Get downtown, see what you can find
Put your face in someone's that ain't mine
Looks like the unemployment blues
Are wearing out your house shoes
Baby, left when your boots came untied

Jimmy said, "Baby, ain't you seen the news
It's as far as the eyes can see
Foreigners are coming in and doing our jobs
For half of what they would've paid me"

You mean half of what you would've made
For something you've never done
Sounds like the bright side to all this
Jimmy is you're asking price went up

Now get downtown, see what you can find
Put your face in someone's that ain't mine
Looks like the unemployment blues
Are wearing out your house shoes
Baby, left when your boots came untied

Jimmy said, "Baby, if I work for you're daddy
It's worse than being his son"
Kim didn't like what he said one bit
And it didn't surprise him none

She said, "My daddy took good enough care of my mama
She hardly had to say a thing"
Jimmy said, "That's part of what's wrong"
Kim said, "Don't you say another
