by David McAdams

Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Lyrics

STANDIN IN THE BREADLINE

A NEW PRESIDENT TOOK POWER
AND SOON I LOST MY JOB
AND THE FOOD FOR MY FAMILY
I SOON HAD TO ROB
I’LL BE STANDIN IN THE BREADLINE
STANDIN IN THE BREADLINE
STANDIN IN THE BREADLINE WITH YOU

PRESIDENTS AND PROMISES
THE WORLD WAS OVERJOYED
UNTIL THE WORKING CLASS
WAS OVERRUN WITH UNEMPLOYED
CHORUS

I VOTED IN THE LAST RACE
FOR THE LESSER OF THE JERKS
FOUND MYSELF FACING
A FUTURE WITHOUT WORK
CHORUS

I SAID MR PRESIDENT I’M DOWN ON MY KNEES
STOP SENDING ALL OUR JOBS OVERSEAS
CHORUS

THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS
IF YOU’RE OLD ENOUGH TO VOTE
DON’T BACK THE CANIDATE
WHO’S GONNA DRIVE YOU BROKE
CHORUS
