CCC Blues

This song is by Washboard Sam and appears on the compilation album Washboard Sam Vol. 3 (1938) (1993) and on the compilation Ain't Times Hard: Political and Social Comment in the Blues (2008).

I'm goin' down, I'm goin' down, to the CCC
I'm goin' down, I'm goin' down, to the CCC
I know that the WPA won't do a thing for me

I told her my name and the place I stay
She said she'd give me a piece of paper
Come back, some other day
I'm goin' down, I'm goin' down, to the CCC
I know that the WPA won't do a thing for me

I told her I had no people and the shape I was in
She said she would help me but she didn't say when
I'm goin' down, I'm goin' down, goin' down to the CCC
I know that the WPA won't do a thing for me

I told her I needed a job and no relief
On my rent day she sent me a can of beef
I'm goin' down, I'm goin' down, to the CCC
I know that the WPA won't do a thing for me

She said she'd give me a job everything was nice and warm
Takin' care of the dead in a funeral home
I'm goin' down, I'm goin' down, to the CCC
I know that the WPA won't do a thing for me
