    Lyrics

    Well, once I was a slave at the sawmill
    Talk about a poor boy, talk about a poor boy
    Never saw a dollar bill

    Well, my work was so hard at the sawmill
    Think about a poor boy, think about a poor boy
    When you go to write your will

    Well, seen my teardrops falling down
    My wife left this sawmill town
    She said, sawmill life had many sins
    'Cause the gravy was too thin

    I can't work no more at the sawmill
    Mercy on a poor boy, mercy on a poor boy
    Let me have a dollar bill

    If you bring your wife to the sawmill
    Well, how you gonna please her, how you gonna please her
    When she wants a dollar bill

    They're not satisfied at the sawmill
    Women like a dollar, women like a dollar
    Yes, and women always will

    Seen my teardrops falling down
    My wife left this sawmill town
    She said the sawmill life had many sins, Lord
    'Cause the gravy was too thin

    I can't work no more at the sawmill
    Mercy on a poor boy, mercy on a poor boy
    Let me have a dollar bill
    Mercy on a poor boy, mercy on a poor boy
    Let me have a dollar bill
