Meat And Bread Blues (Relief Blues) - Teddy Darby
E position, standard tuning, Peetie Wheatstraw, piano

Now, my meat is gone, no more flour in my barrels
All my meat is gone, no more flour in my barrel
And if I don't get me some groceries, I'm sure gonna lose my gal

Now, I'm goin' up to the Relief, I want a order today
SPOKEN: I sure do, boy!
I'm goin' up to the Relief, I want a order today
But if I don't get some groceries, my babe gon' run away

Now, Uncle Sam is helping millions, seem like he'd help poor me
Uncle Sam is helping millions, seem like he'd help poor me
Now, I'm goin' down there tomorrow morning and ask for sympathy

Now if they deny me and that won't help me none
Now if they deny me and that won't help me none
I'm going to help myself with my .32-20 and my .41

And then it will be too late, too late, to call on the Chief of Police
And it'll be too late, too late, to call on the Chief of Police
But I've got to have me some groceries and I'll be denied by the Relief
