lyrics

No account, bank account
Can’t raise a dime
Can’t pay the bills
I got on time

No account is bank account
That’s got me flying low
Sure makes a poor man’s way
A hard row to hoe

They say to keep on smiling
When trouble comes in twos
Rich folks say to keep on smiling
But poor folks pay the dues

No account, bank account
I’m broke and bent
Though the Lord provides
The rent ain’t heaven sent

(solo)

They say to keep on smiling
When trouble comes into
Rich folks say to keep on smiling
But poor folks pay the dues

No account, bank account
I’m broke and bent
Thought the lord provides
The rent ain’t heaven sent

No account, bank account
Will make you change your ways
There won’t be no peace of mind
Till I see better days
