lyrics

DENTED CANTEEN

Down to dirty water
In a dented canteen
Down to the last moment
I may ever need

Went to my doctor
But he wasn't there
He'd gone a golfing
With his buddies somewhere

Down to dirty water
In a dented canteen
Down to the last moment
I may ever need

Went to my senator
Got on my knees
O Mister Senator
Won’t you help me please
My house is under water
The factory shut down
My wife and children
Are leaving town

Down to dirty water
In a dented canteen
Down to the last moment
I may ever need

My son, it hurts me
to see the shape you’re in
Join my campaign
I’ll take you in
By God I promise
A better future in store
You call my people
but don't you die at my back door

Way past dirty water
In its dented canteen
Sister take my last moment
Take my last moment
Sister take my last moment
tic toc, tic toc, tic
I am free
