Lyrics

To:you Details
EMPTY POCKETS
Bobby Sahlen, Gatorlegs Music, ASCAP
(C) 2008

Empty pockets at the end of the day
Got no money for the bills I should pay
Once had it all, but it soon got away from me
Can't you see?

Had a great job with an IRA
A wife and a kid with one more on the way
And then my American Dream became my nightmare
That's not fair

(Bridge)
Even though I had a PHD
My company shipped my job over seas
The market fell, my bank collapsed
Now what's gonna happen to me?

Empty pockets, no IRA
Now I'm livin' at the YMCA
My wife took my kid when the bank took our house away

Break

Repeat Bridge

Empty pockets with a pain in my head
Empty pockets, I'd be better off dead
Once had it all...then came the fall
Empty pockets....
Once had it all....then came the fall
Empty pockets
