Well, I've been workin' in the goddamn sun
With just for a dollar a day
Been workin' for a dollar a day
I've been workin' for dollar a day

Man, I never understood why all my money
Goes down to man at the bank
And all he does is sit and think
About the money that I'm gonna make

And all of my brothers, well, jumpin' on planes
They been goin' off fightin' in wars
Been over on the desert shores
Fightin' for my freedom and a little bit of ore

Man, it sure does cost well whole a lotta money
When you live in the land of the free
Well, I think I'll go and plant me a seed
Grow a marijuana money tree

Well, then I'ma gonna head down to South Louisiana
With a guitar on my back
Corn bread in a gunny sack
Maybe Uncle Sam'll cut me some slack

Been diggin' in the rock since five o'clock
And my calluses is cut to the bone
Well, the soles in my shoes is worn
'Cause I've been diggin' in the rocks since dawn

Well, I've been workin' in the goddamn sun
With just for a dollar a day
I've been workin' for a dollar a day
'Cause I need a little money to save
