It's against th' law to walk, against th' law to talk
Against th' law to loaf, against th' law to work
Against th' law to read, against th' law to write
Against th' law to be a black, a brown or white

Everything's against th' law
I'm a low-pay daddy singing the high-price blues

It's against th' law to eat, against th' law to drink
Against th' law to worry, against th' law to think
Against th' law to marry or try to settle down
Against th' law to ramble like a bum from town to town

Everything's against th' law
I'm a low-pay daddy singing the high-price blues

It's against th' law to come, against th' law to go
Against th' law to ride, against th' law to roll
Against th' law to hug and against th' law to kiss
Against th' law to shoot, against th' law to miss

Everything's against th' law
I'm a low-pay daddy singing the high-price blues

It's against th' law to gamble, against th' law to roam
Against th' law to organize or try to build a home
Against th' law to sing, against th' law to dance
Against th' law to tell y'all the trouble on my hands

Everything in Winston-Salem is against th' law
I'm a low-pay daddy singing the high-price blues

Everything in Winston-Salem is against th' law
I'm a low-pay daddy singing the high-price blues
