Lyrics

YOUR CROOKED WAYS
Words and Music by Michael J. Hamilton

VERSE 1
LEONA WOKE THIS MORNING
HER HEART WAS FULL OF GRIEF
THE SHERIFF STOOD OUTSIDE HER DOOR
AND TOLD HER SHE MUST LEAVE
EVICTION PAPERS IN HIS HAND
THERE WOULD BE NO REPRIEVE
THE MORTGAGE THAT SHE COULD NOT PAY
WOULD PUT HER ON THE STREET

CHORUS 1
YOUR CROOKED WAYS, YOUR CROOKED WAYS
YOU WROTE THE BOOK AND KEPT IT TO YOURSELF
AND YOU HID IT FROM ALL TO SEE
WHEN ALL THE MORTGAGE LENDERS FOLD
AND GONE ARE GLORY DAYS
BLAME IT ON YOUR SENSELESS GREED
AND ALL YOUR CROOKED WAYS

VERSE 2
DETROIT JOHNY LOST HIS JOB
IT’S TOO MUCH TO BELIEVE
THOSE CHEVROLETS DON’T SELL TOO WELL
IN THIS ECONOMY
THEY BLAME IT ON WHATEVER ELSE
NOW THAT THEY FEEL THE SQUEEZE
THEY SOLD IT ALL TO WASHINGTON
PAID FOR BY YOU AND ME

CHORUS 2
YOUR CROOKED WAYS, YOUR CROOKED WAYS
YOU WROTE THE BOOK AND KEPT IT TO YOURSELF
AND YOU HID IT FROM ALL TO SEE
WHEN ALL THE AUTOMAKERS CRASH
AND GONE ARE GLORY DAYS
BLAME IT ON YOUR SENSELESS GREED
AND ALL YOUR CROOKED WAYS

(VERSE 3
WENT TO THE FILLING STATION
TO GET MY TANK TOPPED OFF
LOOKED AT THE PRICE ON THE GAS PUMP
AND I WENT INTO SHOCK
THE PRICE WENT UP NEAR FIFTY CENT
SINCE EIGHT O’CLOCK LAST NIGHT
MUST BE SOME SORT OF HOLIDAY
THEY SURE JACKED UP THE PRICE

CHORUS 3
YOUR CROOKED WAYS, YOUR CROOKED WAYS
YOU WROTE THE BOOK AND KEPT IT TO YOURSELF
AND YOU HID IT FROM ALL TO SEE
WHEN GASOLINE AND OIL TANKS
AND GONE ARE GLORY DAYS
BLAME IT ON YOUR SENSELESS GREED
AND ALL YOUR CROOKED WAYS

YOUR CROOKED WAYS, YOUR CROOKED WAYS
YOU WROTE THE BOOK AND KEPT IT TO YOURSELF
AND YOU HID IT FROM ALL TO SEE
WHEN INVESTMENT HOUSES ALL GO BROKE
AND GONE ARE GLORY DAYS
BLAME IT ON YOUR SENSELESS GREED
AND ALL YOUR CROOKED WAYS
