Boxcutter Blues

Damian Balassone

They put me in these overalls
They put me in these shoes
Yeah, they put me in these overalls
They put me in these shoes
They handed me a Stanley knife
Said, Ďson itís time to pay yer duesí

Well, mama get me outta here
This ainít the life I choose
I said mama get me outta here
This ainít the life I choose
Iím shackled to this factory
Lord, I got the boxcutter blues
