Empty Pockets Blues Lyrics by Pete Seeger


Pete Seeger Lyrics

Empty Pockets Blues Lyrics
I never had a pocket full of money,
I never had a ruby red ring,
All I ever had was you, babe,
To sit and listen to me sing.
I've got those blues,
Those empty pockets blues.

I never had a pocket full of money,
I never had a big Cadillac,
All I ever had was you, babe,
And that's a fact.
I've got those blues,
Those empty pockets blues.

[Bridge:]
Oh, money, money, money, money
When will I make the grade?
I'm so broke that a dollar bill
Looks big as a window shade.

Now some say the blues are sorrowful,
Some say the blues are sad,
But when I sing the blues to you,
They come out feeling glad.
I've got those blues,
Those empty pockets blues.
