    Lyrics

    (harmonica intro)

    Now me an my baby we talked late last night
    An we talked for another hour
    She wanted me to go down to the welfare sto'
    And get a sack a-that welfare flour

    But I told her, 'No'
    'Baby an I sho' don't wanna go'
    I said, 'I'll do anything in the world for you
    I don't wanna go down to that welfare sto'

    Now, you need to go get you some real, white man
    You know, to sign yo' little note
    They give ya a pair of them king-toed shoes
    I want no a-them pleat-back, soldier coat

    But I told 'er, 'No'
    'Baby an I sho' don't wanna go
    I say, 'I'll do anything in the world for ya
    'But I don't wanna go down to that welfare sto'

    (harmonica, drums, guitar)

    President Roosevelt said, on welfare people
    They gonna treat ev'ryone right
    Said, they give ya a can of them beans
    An a can or two of them old tripe

    But I told 'er, 'No'
    'Baby, an I sho' don't wanna go
    I say, 'I'll do anything in the world for ya
    'But I don't wanna go down to that welfare sto', now

    Well now, me an my baby we talked yesterday
    An we talked in my backyard
    She said, 'I'll take care-a you, Sonny Boy
    Just as long as these times stay hard'
    An I told her, 'Yeah, baby an I sho' won't have to go'

    I said, 'If you do that for me
    I won't have to go down to that welfare sto'.
