The Unemployment Blues

TAXI CONFERENCE

This is my first taxi conference - I'm excited to be going. We have prepared full color CDs with our prize winning song and some of my other prize winning songs on it - it looks really great - Christina did an amazing job taking the pictures then laying it out nicely with color inserts.

Here are the lyrics to the ASCAP GORNEY Award winner-

The Unemployment Blues


Thought I could do it better I could do it all
Little did I know I was headed for a fall
I put in the trouble, I put in the sweat
Got the job I wanted, bought a new Corvette
seven years in college, to achieve my dream
Never thought I'd end up, with food stamps to redeem

I've got the blues ...

I was laid off last week don't know what I will do
I'm gonna go on line with the unemployment blues

I've got the blues ...

To sing I am unable to beg I am too proud
not strong enough to dig a ditch or drag a plow
got no money, got no job,
what can I do different? on the sofa like a slob
looking for a job the city seems so cold,
for all my applications no one ever phones


I've got the blues ...

I was laid off last week don't know what I will do
I'm gonna go on-line with the unemployment blues

I've got the blues ...

I worked hard for 3 years before I got laid off
The boss still owes me money, times are really tough
then someone knew somebody, wanted to see me
(But) I chose the wrong direction, saw Queen's in misery
got a one-way ticket to the line around the block
I'm going to write a song called the unemployment rock

I've got the blues ...

Got a one way ticket to the line around the block
I'm going to write a song called the unemployment rock

(c) John Munnelly /Christina Lord
