Help Yourself

This song is by Pure Prairie League and appears on the album Dance (1976).

(M.Reilly/L.Goshorn)

Well you're down and out, wonderin' why things aren't the way they used to be
You're complainin', tryin' to explain how things went wrong to me
Say you need a friend who'll lend a helpin' hand and so you come to me
And if you're lookin' for some help, help yourself

Well you're weary, you're tired of everybody walkin' over you
Go get drunk again, sit and wonder why your friends all laugh at you
'Bout to give it up even though you know there's so much more to do
And you don't need nobody else to help yourself

Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself
Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself

Gettin' better, lookin' like things finally start to go your way
And you've figured out exactly what it is that you've been tryin' to say
Sun is comin' up, with the mornin' comes the dawnin' of brighter day
You didn't need nobody else to help yourself

Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself
Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself
Help yourself... you don't need nobody else, help yourself
