Ain't That A Shame
2008 Bill Gaunce/Steve Soucy

My ex is lookin for me
My bookie's lookin' too
IÃ?Â?d like to help em out
But there's nothin' I can do

I pawned my mama's ring
And I pawned ol' Bessie's bell
The car, the house, my guitar
There's nothing left to sell

Got my hand out on the street
For a little bit o' change
Ain't that a shame, ain't that a shame

Got holes in my pockets
Got holes in my shoes
Got notice for my membership
I swear I've paid my dues

Got 10 days left
On a 90 day note
Got a hole in my hat
Got a hole in my coat

I can't go out in the open
If the weatherman calls for rain
AinÃ?Â?t that a shame, ain't that a shame

If I ever get a dollar
Gonna play it all on blue
Cause that's the way to make it
Have your money work for you

I'll sit back in a big ol' house
Smoking a cigar
And when I get the urge
Go drivin' in my car
But until I get my payoff
Can you spare a little change?
Ain't that a shame, ain't that a shame

I can't go out in the open
If the weatherman calls for rain
Ain't that a shame, ain't that a shame

Got my hand out on the street
For a little bit o' change
AinÃ?Â?t that a shame, ain't that a shame

Ain't that a shame.
