Say Brother

Description
An excuse to use my Christmas harmonica, still so much to learn about that tone! Somehow I feel this is about that social contract we all hope remains in tact, no matter what civil flag we live under - austerity and spending cuts be damned. Thanks so much for checking it out.

Lyrics
I lost my good job today
Nothing ever goes my way
I got bills to pay
Brother say, say,
Say you love me
Say you need me
Say you'll never leave…

See I got a right to work
If you want a right to pork I guess we're even,
But ain't you the one I saw in my pocket
You're asking for taxes,
Where's my future?
You're asking for taxes,
Where's my house?

I lost my good job today
Nothing ever goes my way
I got bills
Brother say, say,
Say you love me
Say you need me
Say you'll never leave…me

In the prisons, in the jails
On my graduation day
Mama can you pay for college?
If not, I don't want to go...
Cuz I lost my good job today

great
You write good songs and this is no exception.
the blend of acoustic guitar, voice, harmonica and drums is a nice one.
melancholy vibe sustained throughout.
Really liked it!

Hit the nail on the head....
With this 1 tough times out there, my generation went through the same
thing, after Vietnam the hole country was in the toilet...
I guess they like keeping people there but this time I think they''ve pushed
it just a bit to far.....
Knuckle heads got guns now, it's not going to get much better because of that alone...
People are fed up won't take much to push them over the edge, so hold
your head high but keep a sharp eye.... :-)
Check out my latest song called Melded Universe....
