    Lyrics

    (Hank Williams - Fred Rose)

    Now you're lookin' at a man that's gettin' kinda mad
    I've had a lots of luck but it's all been bad
    No matter how I struggle and strive
    I'll never get out of this world alive.

    My fishin' pole is broke the creek is full of sand
    My woman ran away with another man
    No matter how I struggle and strive
    I'll never get out of this world alive.

    A distant uncle passed away and left me quite a batch
    And I was livin' high until that fatal day
    A lawyer proved I wasn't born
    I was only hatched.

    Everythin's again't me and it's got me down
    If I jumped in the river I would probly drown
    No matter how I struggle and strive
    I'll never get out of this world alive.

    --- Instrumental ---

    These shabby shoe I'm wearin' all the time
    Is full of holes and nails
    And brother if I stepped on a worn out dime
    I bet a nickel I could tell if it was heads or tails.

    I'm not gonna worry wrinkles in my brow
    'Cause nothin's ever gonna be alright no how
    No matter how I struggle and strive
    I'll never get out of this world alive...
