Blue Suit Blues

Nine to five man I'm buried alive,
Out looking for a job find a way to survive
Five to nine man I'm working part time
See me standin' on the corner
Can you spare a dime
Nine 'til two I'll sing a song for you
Come see me in the bar I'm doin' the BLUE SUIT BLUES

Times are bad, you don't know the luck I've had
There's no jobs to be found they say it's just a passing fad
Standin' in line, trying to pass some time
See me standin' on the corner makin' words to rhyme
Nothin' to do, I'll sing a song for you
'Cause there's not a lotta work for them BLUE SUIT BLUES

CHORUS:
Tell me who put the blues in this old blue suit
You were with me when I married, you still don't give a hoot
Now there's holes in my pockets nothin's fallin' through
See me standin' on the corner I'm doin' the BLUE SUIT BLUES

Two 'til nine is my favorite time
See me sleeping off those bad dreams yesterday left behind
One more day, see the price that I pay
I'm always going hungry, those times is goin' away
Nothin' to do, I'll sing a song for you
'Cause there's not a lotta work for them BLUE SUIT BLUES
Liner notes
This track was recorded live at Applejacks in Jacksonville, Florida in October of 1988.  Performing on the track are Gary Tussing on Cello, Spencer Mallinson is playing the bass and Kevin Stewart programmed the drums and is on the acoustic guitar and vocals.  

This gig was billed as "Kevin Stewart & Company".  Gary Tussing was joining Stewart and Mallinson as a one-time, sort of Stewart Tussing reunion gig.  Stewart Tussing had officially disbanded in 1985.  Other tracks on this site from this live recording are "To Reach There" and "Temptation"

 

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.  There's also a negative side."                        --Hunter S. Thompson
