The Lyrics

Lost my job in Lubbock,
I ain't workin' there no more
Fell off a' my horse
And fractured a femur,
Ligaments still sore
The hard times are here,
Economy's rough,
Sold my saddle for a whore
Lost my job in Lubbock,
I ain't workin' there no more

I'd been workin', wranglin' cattle
For nigh on eighteen years
All that time I saved no money
Spent it on the babes and beers
Now I make my home wide open sky
A starry night, a sunny day
Old mama earth helps me survive
Since the month ends with no pay

Lost my job in Lubbock
I ain't workin' there no more
All I own is my horse,
I can't file bankruptcy
Bunkhouse locked the door
The girlfriend I had, found somebody else,
When the petty cash ran low'r
Lost my job in Lubbock,
I ain't wranglin' cows no more

Well the ranch boss he don't pity a soul
And I sure ain't one ta' beg
Just pull down my dusty Stetson,
Limp on my bad leg
Obama's the one I voted for
Not a good change has come my way
Out on the range there's no oasis
Sure could use a Bud today

Lost my job in Lubbock,
I ain't workin' there no more
Fell off a' my horse
And fractured a femur,
Ligaments still sore
The hard times are here,
Economy's rough,
Sold my saddle for a whore
Lost my job in Lubbock,
I ain't workin' there no more

Lost my job in Lubbock,
I ain't pokin' cows no more

AFW - good job, but at first I thought this might be about fired Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach. ;D

"Poking cows"? Is that what they call a double entendre? I brand this parody BAR555.

I had a *great* job, until ...

Nice title switch, and in light of yer oft-stated political leanings, the "Obama / no good change" couplet was refreshing -- and courageous. I'll be your Bud (get it? get it?) and give you $555 before the finance company repossesses the horse. -- B.H. TribuTTer

Seems we're on a common theme today. Unemployment will continue to decline as the statistics starve to death.
