No Use To Me

Loading trucks for richer men
Doesn’t make me feel real free
And this money I’ve been sweating for
What good will it ever be

For if I work away my better days
And toil in the sun
I might earn a 20 penny raise
By the time the job is done

What joy will those paychecks beat
When my body’s sick and thin
Future dreams are never sweet
As the life that coulda been

So send their money straight to hell
It’s of no use to me
I’ll live my way while I’m young and well
Less cash is fine by me
