    Lyrics

    Now you're lookin' at a man that's gettin' kind-a mad
    I had lot's 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's broke the creek is full of sand
    My woman run 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.

    Ev'rything's agin' me and it's got me down
    If I jumped in the river I would prob'ly drown
    No matter how I struggle and strive
    I'll never get out of this world alive.

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

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

    I could buy a Sunday suit and it would leave me broke
    If it had two pair of pants I would burn the coat
    No matter how I struggle and strive
    I'll never get out of this world alive.

    If it was rainin' gold I wouldn't stand a chance
    I wouldn't have a pocket in my patched up pants
    No matter how I struggle and strive
    I'll never get out of this world alive.
