Insurance Man Blues
(Sonny Boy Williamson)

Every Monday morning, people
Insurance man knocking on my door
Every Monday morning  people
Insurance man  knocking on my door,
Well, I tell him to come back on a Tuesday
'Cause Sonny Boy hasn't made no money, you know,

He say, "But you haven't paid your insurance in 2 or 3 weeks," (2x)
He said,  "If you don't pay by next Wednesday
I reckon I'll have to let your insurance drop, "

I say, "lnsurance man, please don't turn me out,
Lord, I aint got nobody to bury me, "
Well, Lord, I said, "If you don't bury me
They'll throw my body in the deep blue sea, "

I said, "You know how times is nowadays, can't no one man find no job, "
I say,  "I can't even take care of my wife and baby
And I might' near to let my own family starve,"

I said,  "Please give me two more weeks, insurance man, please do that for
                   me, "
Well, I say, "Don't live up North,
My home is back down in Tennessee, "
