​Pitiful Blues

This song is by Malcolm Holcombe and appears on the album Pitiful Blues (2014).

All I wanna see all I wanna hear
Is people dyin' screamin' full o' fear
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
I ain't learned nothin' but the poor me pitiful blues

Go tell ya mama tell ya daddy too
They drove me crazy tellin' me the truth
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
I ain't learned nothin' but the poor me pitiful blues

I had my share o' women got all I could drink
Liquor kept me swimmin' in my head to big too think
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
I ain't learned nothin' but the poor me pitiful blues

The big man spends my money the big man lives it up
He don't give me nothin' he don't give me some
Just an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
I ain't learned nothin' but the poor me pitiful blues

I sit around the table pray down on the floor
Swear I'm gonna go to war and suffer nevermore
It's an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
I ain't learned nothin' but the poor me pitiful blues
I ain't learned nothin' but the poor me pitiful blues
