​Poor Boy Blues

This song is by David Johansen and The Harry Smiths and appears on the album David Johansen and the Harry Smiths (2000).

Poor boy, poor boy
Poor boy a long way from home

I was down in Louisiana
Just doin' as I please
Now I'm in Texas
I got to work or leave

Poor boy, poor boy
Poor boy a long way from home

If your home's in Louisiana
What you doin' over here?
'Cause my home ain't in Texas
And I sure don't care

Poor boy, poor boy
Poor boy a long way from home

I don't care
If the boat don't never land
I like stayin' on the water
Just as long as any man

Poor boy, poor boy
Poor boy a long way from home

Poor boy, poor boy
Poor boy a long way from home

And my boat come a rockin'
Just like a drunken man
And my home's is on the water
And I sure don't like land

Poor boy, poor boy
Poor boy a long way from home
