Lyrics

The clouds of dust keeps coming 'round
Takes more and more of our precious ground
Nothing grows, it just don't rain
The dirt goes, suffering remains

Not much left by Thirty Five
No work, no money, can you spare a dime
FDR knows how we feel
Offered us a brand new deal

(chorus)
The clouds get bigger, darker everyday
We watch the wind blow our future away
When a loaf of bread can be found
There's not enough to go around
Give me work, I want to try
To make it through Nineteen Thirty-Five

Mmmm yeah

Sunken pride stands in lines and waits
What surplus comes for us today
Helpless knows well our despair
Look around, friends everywhere

Oh oh oh oh

Not much left by Thirty Five
No work, no money, can you spare a dime
FDR knows how we feel
Offered us a brand new deal

(repeat chorus)

Nineteen Thirty-Five yeah oh Nineteen Thirty Five
