So now Boys, I've been to Bethlehem
Rode there on a big steam train
Lost two fingers in the steel nails
And I ain't gonna back againI fought for my country
Lord knows, I did my best
Crawlin' 'cross some foreign field
To pin the ribbon to my chest

Refrain:
(So) pass around the bottle, Boy
Let's talk about old time
Night's rollin' in it's told a sin
Here on the Welfare Line

Served on a Georgia road gang
Couldn't pay the debts, I owe
'Cause I ain't made a silver
And I ain't never seen no gold

I still remember Rachel
Soft as a velvet gown
They laid her in a pauper's grave
On the other side of town

Refrain:

-Solo-

Now some folks are born to money
You know, I wish them well
If the devil should ever want my soul
I swear, I'll never sell

Refrain: 2x
