It's against the law to walk, against the law to talk
Against the law to loaf, against the law to work
Against the law to read, against the law to write
Against the law to be a black, brown or white
Ever'thing's against the law
I'm a low pay daddy singing the high price blues

It's against the law to eat, against the law to drink
Against the law to worry, against the law to think
Against the law to marry or try to settle down
Against the law to ramble like a bum from town to town
Ever'thing's against the law
I'm a low pay daddy singing the high price blues

It's against the law to come, against the law to go
Against the law to ride, against the law to roll
Against the law to hug, against the law to kiss
Against the law to shoot, against the law to miss
Ever'thing's against the law
I'm a low pay daddy singing the high price blues

It's against the law to gamble, it's against the law to roam
Against the law to organize or try to build a home
Against the law to sing, against the law to dance
Against the law to tell y'all the trouble on my hands
Ever'thing in Winston-Salem is against the law
I'm a low pay daddy singin' the high price blues

Yeah, you know me and my boy
We was down in North Carolina not too far from Winston-Salem
Five-oh stopped us, tryna talk some stuff
I said: "The police might arrest me
But the judge gon' set me free"
Man-made law, I heed, no way

Ever'thing in Winston-Salem is against the law
I'm a low pay daddy singin' the high price blues
