Ev'ry Monday mo'nin
People, the insurance man knockin' on my do'
Ev'ry Monday mo'nin
People, that insurance man knockin' on my do'
Well now, tell him to come back on a Tuesday
Because Sonny Boy hasn't made no money, you know

He said, 'Yeah, but you haven't paid yo' insurance
In two or three week'
Said, 'Sonny Boy, an your insurance have gon' down'
He said, 'But you haven't paid yo' insurance
In two or three week'
He said, 'And your insurance have gone down'
He said, If you don't pays by next Wednesday
I reckon I'll have to let your insurance drop, now'

I said, 'Insurance man please don't turn me out'
Lord, an I ain't got nobody to bury me
'Now insurance man, please don't turn me out'
I haven't got nobody to bury me'
Well now an I say, 'If you won't bury me
They'll throw my body in the deep blue sea'

I'll tell you, you know how times is now-a-day
Can't no one man find no job
I'll say, 'You know how times is now-a-day
Can't no one man find no job'
I'll say 'I can't even take care of my wife an baby
An I might have to let my family starve

I said, 'Please give me two mo' weeks
Insurance man please do that for me'
I said, 'Now please give me two mo' weeks
Insurance man please do that for me'
Well I say, 'I don't live up north
My home is back down in Tennessee.'

(harmonica & instrumental to end)
