White House Blues 2

Look here, Mr. Hoover, it's see what you done
You went off a-fishin', let the country go to ruin.
Now he's gone, I'm glad he's gone.

Roosevelt's in the White House, doin' his best
While old Hoover is layin' 'round and takin' his rest.
Now he's gone, I'm glad he's gone.

Pants all busted, patches all way down,
People got so ragged, They couldn'y go to town
Now he's gone, I'm glad he's gone.

Workin' in the coal miones, twenty cents a ton,
Fourteen long hours and your work day is done
Now he's gone, I'm glad he's gone.

People all angry, they all got the blues
Wearing patched britches and old tennis shoes
Now he's gone, I'm glad he's gone.

Got up this morning, all I could see
Was corn bread and gravy just a-waitin' for me.
And now he's gone, I'm glad he's gone.

Look here, Mr. Hoover, it's see what you done
You went off a-fishin', let the country go to ruin.
Now he's gone, I'm glad he's gone.
