Bo Carter – Sales Tax Lyrics

These times now : ain’t suiting me
*Account it* : costing a dollar three
Old Aunt Martha : live behind the jail
A sign on the wall : saying liquor for sale
I never seen : the likes since I been born
The women got the sales tax : on the South End home
You used to buy it : for a dollar round
Now sales tax is on it : all over town
I’m as loving : as a woman can be
The stuff I’ve got : will cost you a dollar and three
Now you may take me : to be a fool
Everything is sold : by the government rule
