Bo Carter – Sales Tax Lyrics

These times now : ain’t suiting me
*Account it* : costing a dollar three

Old Aunt Martha : live behind the jail
A sign on the wall : saying liquor for sale

I never seen : the likes since I been born
The women got the sales tax : on the South End home

You used to buy it : for a dollar round
Now sales tax is on it : all over town

I’m as loving : as a woman can be
The stuff I’ve got : will cost you a dollar and three

Now you may take me : to be a fool
Everything is sold : by the government rule
