How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Times And Live - Bruce Springsteen

Well the doctor comes 'round here with his face all bright

 

And he says "in a little while you'll be alright"

All he gives is a humbug pill

A dose of d**e and a great big bill

Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live

 

"Me and my old school pals had

Some mighty high times down here

And what happened to you poor black folks

Well it just ain't fair"

He took a look around gave a little pep talk

Said "I'm with you" then he took a little walk

Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live

 

There's bodies floatin' on Canal

And the levees gone to Hell

Martha get me my sixteen gauge and some dry shells

Them who's got got out of town

And them who ain't got left to drown

Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live

 

Got family scattered from Texas all the way to Baltimore

Yeah and I ain't got no home in this world no more

 

Gonna be a judgment that's a fact

A righteous train rollin' down this track

 

How can a poor man stand such times and live

 

Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live

Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live
