"High Inflation Blues" as written by and Collom....
Tryin' to make a livin' it's harder every day
By the time I see a dollar just another bill to pay
I got a wife and family and the bills are pilin' high
These days it ain't easy for a working man to get by

I can't help but wonder what a man suppose to do
I got those hard breaking escalatin' high inflation blues

By the time I get the payday the money's already gone
Someone's eatin' chicken all I git is the bones
My wife needs a new coat the kids need clothes to school
We're all out of grocery's and it's Tuesday afternoon

Well it could drive a man to drinkin' but I can't afford the booze
I got those hard breaking escalatin' high inflation blues

The cost of livin' keeps goin' up the taxes ain't goin' down
I'm just treadin' water to tryin' not to drown
Mr Courter I know you're up there and I should could use a hen
So won't you please have mercy on a common working man

I just keep on tryin' doin' all that I can do
I got those hard breaking escalatin' high inflation blues (yodel)
