Carolina Blues - New York City 1944
(Jelly Belly) We don't want no more war, and no Depression at all
We don't want no more war, and no Depression at all
It would be too hard for a poor man to get a job at all

(Guitar Slim) Lord, I hope not no more hard times, Lord, will ever be
Yeah, I hope not no more hard times, Lord, will ever be
Now if they come, who, who Lord, gonna help poor me

(Jelly Belly) We don't know the future life, whether it's dark or light
We don't know the future life, whether it's dark or light
Each day brings something, whether it's wrong or right

(Guitar Slim) Well, all of you better save your dollar, and try to make other plans
People, you better save the dollar, and try to make other plans
Don't you know, around running Welfare, ooo-ooo Lord, eatin' out them garbage cans

La fotografia nel video non è di Alec “Guitar Slim” Seward ma è quella di un altro "Guitar Slim", Eddie Jones (1926-1959), morto alcolizzato a soli 32 anni

"Guitar Slim" è un soprannome molto comune nel blues.
