One day every week, I prop myself at my front door
One day every week, I prop myself at my front door
And the police force couldn't move me 'fore that mail man blow

'Twas a little white paper Uncle Sam had done addressed to me
'Twas a little white paper Uncle Sam had done addressed to me
It meant one more week, one week of sweet prosperity

But bad news got to spreading, and my poor hair started turning grey
But bad news got to spreading, and my poor hair started turning grey
Cause Uncle Sam started chopping, cutting thousands off the W.P.A.

Just a little pink slip, in a long white envelope
Just a little pink slip, in a long white envelope
Was the end of my road, was the last ray of my only hope

After four long years, Uncle Sam done put me on the shelf
After four long years, Uncle Sam done put me on the shelf
Cause that little pink slip means you got to go for yourself

Other Ida Cox song Lyrics
  • Blues Aint Nothin Else But...
    "The man that keeps you worried, and always cryin'
    She can't get when she want him, gotta catch him when she can
    Just like consumption, it kills you by degrees
    Cryin' about her lover, another woman took him away..."
  • Booze Crazy Man Blues
    "I love you sweet papa, please let your mama stay
    You know I've stuck with you, sweet daddy through thick and thin
    Just for daddy to have, some place to lay his weary head
    Your goin' to let bad whiskey carry you to your grave

    ..."
  • Broadcasting Blues
    "Tune in on your radio, and find my man for me
    Please call him for me, move my heart this heavy load
    Cause I'll give the world, to get him back to me
    Announce to the world, I've got those broadcasting blues

    ..."
  • Chicago Monkey Man Blues
    "I'm goin' to Chicago, sorry but I can't take you
    Yes I'm goin' to Chicago, sorry but I can't take you
    Cause there's nothin' on State Street, that a monkey man can do
    If monkey men were money, I'd be a Chicago millionaire..."
  • Coffin Blues
    "Daddy oh daddy, won't you answer me please
    Daddy oh daddy, won't you answer me please
    All day I stood by your coffin, tryin' to give my poor heart ease
    I rubbed my hands over your head and whispered in your ear..."
  • Death Letter Blues
    "I received a letter that my man was dyin'
    I received a letter that my man was dyin'
    I caught the first plane and went home flyin'
    When I got there the folks had gathered around..."
  • Fogyism
    "To hear a hoot owl holler, someone is surely dyin'
    And if a black cat crosses them, they'll break right down in tears
    Your man is sure to leave you, and never return no more
    That's a true sign he's got someone else bakin' his jelly roll

    ..."
  • Four Day Creep
    "When you lose your money don't lose your mind
    When you lose your money don't lose your mind
    When you lose your good man please don't mess with mine
    And I'm gonna buy me a bulldog to watch my man while he sleeps..."
