This one’s got the song on it!
Woody is someone I never grow tired of. He was so good – perceptive, amusing and biting. I guess we all known one or two people like this – grouchy, mean, nasty and thoroughly abusive.
I dedicate this to a couple of people I’ve had the misfortune to meet.
Mean Talking Blues
Words and Music Adapted by Woody Guthrie
I’m the meanest man that ever had a brain,
All I scatter is aches and pains.
I’m carbolic acid, and a poison face,
And I stand flat-footed in favor of crime and disgrace.
If I ever done a good deed — I’m sorry of it.
I’m mean in the East, mean in the West,
Mean to the people that I like the best.
I go around a-causin’ lot of accidents,
And I push folks down, and I cause train wrecks.
I’m a big disaster — just goin’ somewhere’s to happen.
