I need a bailout
Tom Henry 2008

My dog is looking hungry
The trailer rent is due
My car is gonna be repoed
And my wife is on the lose

I had a good job down in Motor City
luggin tires on new trucks
my 401K has been stolen
I aint got a hidden stash of bucks


So Im lookin for a bailout
Debt free and clear
Im lookin for a bailout
That's what Im talking here
So come on Uncle Sam, have some pity on a workin mans fate
I need a bailout, I hope its not to late
Said I need a bailout before its to late

Life was looking good
Up 'till about a week ago
when I could still bought a tank of gas
Down at the local Texaco

Now I don't have two nickels to rub together
Hopin a genie might appear
And I just checked my last lotto ticket
Looks I may have to just 'dissapear'


Great lyrics on this , loved the guitar parts .
