​Trailer Trash

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Electric Lady (2005).

I was young when I first got started
Things didn't always go my way
I will never lose the hunger
To make a stand, survive another day

I feel my spirit growing stronger
I must admit, it's taking its toll on me
They took my home and all I owned in taxes
But they'll never take my soul or dignity

I played the game right down the line, I was honest
I can't believe people can be so cruel
The boys and I just want to make a living
Oh, but what do you do when you're surrounded by a load of fools?

I held my own and I don't need no sympathy
Just ask my friends and they will put you right
I don't feel that I did anything wrong
I certainly won't go down without a fight

You better be coming back
You can depend on that
I look the other way when they call me trailer trash
You better be on the attack
Oh, they won't get away with that
I look the other way when they call me trailer trash

When I get to where I'm going I'll take some time out
Reflect upon the good time I've had
I'll keep on moving south in my trailer
There'll be no time to be bitter or sad

You better be coming back
Oh, you can depend on that
I look the other way when they call me trailer trash
You better be on the attack
No, they won't get away with that
I look the other way when they call me trailer trash

You better be coming back
Oh, they won't get away with that
I look the other way when they call me trailer trash
I look the other way when they call me trailer trash
I look the other way when they call me trailer trash
I look the other way when they call me trailer trash
I look the other way when they call me trailer trash
