Woody Guthrie – Poor Lazarus lyrics

POOR LAZARUS
(Woody Guthrie)
Dead or alive, it's a hard road
Dead or alive, it's a hard road
Dead or alive
Well the new sheriff sent me a letter
Oh the new sheriff sent me a letter
Come up and see me, dead or alive
Come up and see me, dead or alive
Well, he even sent me my picture (2x)
How do I look, boys, dead or alive (2x)
Well he said he would pay expenses
Dead or alive, hey, hey
Well, he said he would clothe and feed me
Dead or alive, poor boy
Well I'm sorry that I can't come sheriff
Dead or alive, poor boy
I don't like your hard rock hotel
Dead or alive, no sheriff
I've gotta go and see my little sweet thing
Dead or alive, yes sheriff
