Brown Check
verse 1
Down in Estill County
A few years ago
Delbert Meeks told his friends
He was feelin' low
Everyone knew he was
Just a sorry sot
Too dang lazy to hold down a job

verse 2
He called his drinkin' buddy
Doctor Willie Paul
Said doc could you help me
Get on the draw
Could you tell my lawyer
How sick I am
So he can take my case to
The Government man

chorus
I wanna get myself a brown check
disability
you know my back hurts real bad
It's been a-killin' me
I want to get myself a new car
Wanna go in style
Wanna get myself a brown check
I wanna rock awhile

verse 2
Could you make it sound real bad
Like I've got whiplash
I could take a few odd jobs
If they'd pay me cash
I don't want to get turned in
Hope nobody sees
That there's really not a blame thing
wrong with me

chorus 2
I just want myself a brown check
Disability
You know my back hurts real bad
it's been a-killin me
I wanna get myself a new car
gonna go in style
I wanna get myself a brown check
I wanna rock a while

tag
I just want myself a brown check
I want to rock a while
