  • Lyrics
  • Got a woman that loves me
    And I love her so
    But she's all dressed up now
    With nowhere to go.

    All our old hang-outs
    Are boarded up and closed
    Or bein' bought by somebody
    Nobody knows.

    But things ain't that bad
    We still got the kids
    We're goin' out to the movies
    Right after this.

    Goin' back to school
    Savin' up my tuition
    Gonna rewrite all the rules
    On the old blackboard.

    'Cause it seems things today
    There ain't no magic in 'em
    They don't cut the grade
    Like they used to.

    Depression blues
    Nowhere to go
    Bein' bought by somebody
    Nobody knows.

    Is there anybody out there
    With a voice loud and clear
    Gonna sing all the words
    We all want to hear.

    Depression blues
    Nowhere to go
    Bein' bought by somebody
    Nobody knows. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
