Able Bodied Man
I'm calling from the station and I haven't got much time to let you know Got a ticket for Missouri and there's things I need to say before I go If I could I'd have you meet me but I don't see how I can I don't have enough to pay your fare There's a factory in Columbus hiring now I understand And they're looking for an able bodied man You should meet some money in the letter that I mailed two days ago But when I wrote the letter saying you could come to me I didn't know And I was goin' to lose my job in such a little while So now we're gonna have to change our plan They may not hire me in Columbus but I'm pretty sure they will Cause they're looking for an able bodied man If I'd've more education now I'd've made a better life for me and you But just simple manual labor is the only kind of work that I can do The bus is loadin' for Missouri so I guess I'd better go I'll call you just as soon as I can I'll be sending you a ticket cause I think I'll get a job If they're looking for an able bodied man and remember I'm your able bodied man
