This song is by Big Bill Broonzy and appears on the compilation album The Young Big Bill Broonzy (1968) and on the compilation Ain't Times Hard: Political and Social Comment in the Blues (2008).

Starvation in my kitchen
Rent sign's on my door
And if my luck don't change
I can't stay at my home no more

And I got up this morning
Just about the dawn of day
Mean I ain't got no job
I ain't got no place to stay

Lord I walked to a store
I ain't got a dime
When I asked for a darn neckbone
The clerk don't pay me no mind

Lord Lord
Mama some old rainy day
Mean my luck going to change
And I going to be treated this a‑way
