He wants me gone
He wants me out
All I can do
Is cry and shout
Shake my fist
At the clouds
Like an old man
I’m allowed
All for words
I dared to write
No matter that
I am contrite
I did not mean it
The words were empty
But he seen it
And don’t wanna rent me

Eviction blues
Lace up my shoes
Pack boxes and bags
How my heart lags
Goodbye house and
Goodbye home
Got to strike out
On my own
Eviction blues
I pay my dues
Turn in my key
To the enemy
Goodbye apartment
Goodbye life
Goodbye pain and
Goodbye strife

I suffer from
A vile affliction
That led me to
A damned eviction
Somedays I’m up
But most I’m down
That’s why he don’t want
Me around
My time to run
Now it’s all coming
So undone
I said I’m sorry
Please forgive
Can’t you please
Live and let live

Eviction woes
It’s time to go
Say farewell
To my little cell
Grab the cat
And leave the flat
Time to go to
Someplace new
Eviction struggles
Problem doubles
Who will accept me
If you reject me
That’s the catch
Must start from scratch
So uncouth
Ain’t that the truth

I’m on the stand
With shaking hands
Sweat running down my neck
Can barely speak
I feel so meek
Oh I am a wreck
Tell my story
Glory and gory
Just as long as it’s honest
And have some hope
On this slippery slope
That justice will be promised

Eviction blues
I see the clues
All around me
They confound me
Eviction jam
I’m telling you man
I think I know
It’s time to go
Leave behind
My peace of mind
To the unknown
My cover blown
A new day dawns
It’s on, it’s on
A new day rises
With new surprises
