Song Description

This song tells the story of someone that, like many of us, has gotten over their head in credit card debt.

Story Behind the Song

A few years ago, my friend made a comment that her credit card statement was like the national debt. I thought that was funny, so I wrote a song about it.

Lyrics

Credit Card Blues

All my friends said I should get me one.
Told me I would have a world of fun.
So I filled the forms out and I sent them in.
Now I can't believe the world of trouble I'm in.

chorus:
Credit card blues, I got the credit card blues.
Credit card blues, yeah, the credit card blues.
Let me tell you, brother, I'm in some kind of stew.
Got a serious case of the credit card blues.

I get warnings on the telephone,
Warnings in the mail.
They say if I don't pay my bills, they'll put me in jail.
Amy Grant has had her credit card since 1982.
She'd do me a favor if she'd take mine, too.
(chorus)
Bridge:
Interest rates, bonus points, subprime mortgage,
Student loans, lenders' fees, workplace shortage.
IRA, IRS, structured payments.
Overdue, overdrawn, I can't take this. (repeat)
(chorus X2)
