some call it taxes,
some cannot pay,some call it revenue,
to hide what they say,
some want to shirk them,
others pay their share,
others have a billion
don't even want to share,
I got those blues....
those low down, not a dime more in my pocket blues,
got that low down taxing problem,
got them old old revenue blues.
The tea party started first
a long long time ago
when we were taxed too high,
the tea it had to go....
into the river...
a long long time ago,
now am thinking about the taxes,
and wondering how to pay,
the man says we don't have a choice,
or we'll take your land away,
and I pay them at the pump you know,
i pay it at the food store,
then when that april come around, they'll want a little more,
that's the price you got to pay,
for living in this freedom,
got the revenue blues today.............
