lyrics:
Well a doctor comes round here with his face so bright
And he says in a little while you'll be all right
But all he gives is a humbug pill
A dose of dope and a great big bill

Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live?

He said, "Me and my old school pals had some mighty high times round here
"And what happened to you poor black folks, well it just ain't fair"
He took a look around, gave a little pep talk
Said "I'm with ya" and he took a little walk

Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live?

There's bodies floatin' on Canal
And the levee's blown to hell
Martha, get me my sixteen-gauge and some dry shells
Them who've got got out of town
Them who ain't got left to drown

Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live?

I got family scattered from Texas all the way to Baltimore
Mister, I ain't got no home in this world no more
Gonna be a judgment and that's a fact
A righteous train rolling down this track

How can a poor man stand such times and live?
Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times?
Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live?
