Jr. Johnny’s “High Price Blues”
(Select to hear a sound bite)

Let me tell something,
Ain’t no joke,
High cost of living,
Is keeping me broke.
Walked in the meat market,
Just about noon,
Butcher tells me,
The cow jumped over the moon,
Johnny’s gone to war,
Sally’s on her knee’,
Oh, I tell ya man,
High prices are, killing me!!!

Meat, butter, and eggs,
Going higher still,
You don’t even get no change,
From a hundred dollar bill.
Prices going higher and higher,
It’s a disgrace,
Politics going crazy,
Can’t even plead my case.
People walking and talking,
Nothing’s the same,
The world’s gone crazy,
This ain’t no game.

Ya prices going higher and higher,
It’s a disgrace,
Politics going crazy,
Can’t even plead my case,
Ya, I got the high price blues,
Oh man,
“HIGH PRICE BLUES”!!!
