"The interest is up and the stock market's down..." Lot of good folks still hurtin' round here and not much I can do about most of it.
"And you only get mugged if you go downtown..." Just amazes me how both the banks and even local idiots are stealin' from their friends and neighbors. The local boys and girls with badges can barely keep up.
"Cause you can't starve us out and you can't make us run..." On one hand I'm finding good stuff for decent prices at local auctions... then ya feel the guilt 'cause someone else is takin' it on the chin for your bargin.
"Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run..." We've got a lot of folks and friends just hangin' on with all they got. There's still a good spirit among folks that ain't completely broke yet.
"Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do..." I guess we're better off than a lot of city slickers 'cause you can still make do and there's still a sense of community between the cornfields.
"Country folks can survive... we say grace and we say ma'am, if you ain't into that we don't give a damn..." Men will still hold a door for a gal and tip a hat in these parts... and even Good Samaritan a stranger with a flat tire along side the road. It ain't all bad, but sometimes as Yogi said, "It's deja vu all over again..."
"The preacher man says it's the end of time..." It's been in interesting day 'round here, mostly because it seems to be the same as all the other days. Same news, same happenings, just another day. Start off for work before daylight...
