If You Ain't Got Nothin' (You Ain't Got Nothin' To Lose)    (1982)

If you ain't got nothin' you ain't got nothin' to lose
There ain't no pressure when you're singin' these low down blues
Smokin' that git down bummin' them red men chews
If you ain't got nothin' you ain't got nothin' to lose

Daddy was a free loader workin' for the railroad line
I grew up listenin' to buddy can you spare a dime
Oh, situation and the world's inflation and the bomb could be bad news
But when you ain't got nothin' you ain't got nothin' to lose

If you ain't got nothin' you ain't got nothin' to lose
There ain't no pressure when you're singin' these low down blues
Smokin' that git down bummin' them red men chews
If you ain't got nothin' you ain't got nothin' to lose

I used to work my fingers to the bone
I had everything that me and the bank could own
But a sweaty blue collar and a deflated dollar ain't no way to pay your dues
Well, if you ain't got nothin' you ain't got nothin' to lose

If you ain't got nothin' you ain't got nothin' to lose
There ain't no pressure when you're singin' these low down blues
Smokin' that git down bummin' them red men chews
If you ain't got nothin' you ain't got nothin' to lose

If you ain't got nothin' you ain't got nothin' to lose
