Let's Have a New Deal

This song is by Carl Martin and appears on the split compilation album Carolina Blues (1998) by Tennessee Chocolate Drops, Carl Martin and Brownie McGhee.

Now, everybody's cryin', "Lets have a New Deal"
Police station's loaded down, I know just how you feel
Everybody's cryin', "Let's have a New Deal"
'Cause I've got to make a living, if I have to rob and steal

Now, I'm getting mighty tired of sitting around
I ain't makin' a dime just wearin' my shoe's sole down
Everybody's cryin', "Let's have a New Deal"
'Cause I've got to make a living, if I have to rob and steal

Now, I woke up this mornin', doggone my soul
My flour barrel was empty, swear I didn't have no coal
Everybody's cryin', "Let's have a New Deal"
'Cause I've got to make a living, if I have to rob and steal

Now, you go to your work and put in your complaints
Eight times out of ten, you know, they'll say, "I can't"
So everybody's cryin', "Let's have a New Deal"
'Cause I've got to make a living, if I have to rob and steal

They don't want to give you no dough, don't hardly pay your rent
And it ain't costin' them one doggone cent
Everybody's cryin', "Let's have a New Deal"
'Cause I've got to make a living, if I have to rob and steal

Now, I ain't made a dime since they closed down the mill (spoken: Yeah)
I'm sitting right here waiting on that brand New Deal
Everybody's cryin', "Let's have a New Deal"
'Cause I've got to make a living, if I have to rob and steal
