9. Big-time Blues

Walter ran scams every day of his life
He saved up his money and he gave it to his wife
Now she split town and he just learned the news
It’s a little thing but it feels like big-time blues

Slick Jim Brady had some gamblin’ debts
They’re drawin’ pictures on his chest with a cigarette
They’re sketchin’ him a deal he can’t refuse
It’s a little thing but it feels like big-time blues

bridge
So mind your manners and trim your hair
Stand up straight and don’t lean back in your chair
Clean your ears and don’t sleep late
Count your blessings and choose your fate

Harry cooked the books and kept a little for himself
So his boss sent him fishin’ off the continental shelf
He’s sinking fast in his brand-new overshoes
It’s a little thing but it feels like big-time blues
It's a little thing but it feels like big-time blues
