Life Is Just a Book

This song is by Washboard Sam and appears on the compilation album Washboard Sam Vol. 6 1941-1942 (1993).

Life is just a book, every day is a brand new page
Life is just a book, every day is a brand new page
There is one thing I know, ooh well we have no more pay

There is so many people, standing on the corner today
There is so many people, standing on the corner today
They can't find no job, ooh well and no place to stay

Now once I had money, could go most anywhere
Wouldn't wear a shirt, after it tear
Now my money's gone, done pawned all of my clothes
And if I don't make some changes, I'll be sleeping outdoors
So take it easy take it easy, Lord how can I rest
If you ain't a stone pony, ooh well hard times will bust your vest

Beat it up boys, beat it up
Yes Lord yes


Now since prices have went up, on meal and leg bone
There's been a‑many person, hung their head and moan
But the reason so many. without a place to stay
Standing around, depending on the W.P.A.
So take it easy take it easy, Lord how can I rest
If you ain't a stone pony, ooh well hard times will bust your vest
