Poor Boy Workin' Blues Lyrics

by Dailey and Vincent

Work all night and I work all day,
Life just ain't worth livin' this way
Work the soles right off of my shoes,
I've got the poor boy workin' blues

Left my home when I was just a boy,
Found me a job up north in Detroit
Work long hours just to pay my bills,
While the rich man lived in a mansion on the hill

Work all night and I work all day,
Life just ain't work livin' this way
Work the soles right off of my shoes,
I've got the poor boy workin' blues

Call me a country boy call me what you will,
But I ain't no crook lookin' for a way to steal
Work long hours just to pay my way,
Lord I barely make it from day to day

Work all night and I work all day,
Life jus ain't worth livin' this way
Work the soles right off of my shoes,
I've got the poor boy workin' blues

Work all night and I work all day,
Life just ain't worth livin' this way
Work the soles right off of my shoes,
I've got the poor boy workin' blues

I've got the poor boy workin' blues
