  • Just finished this recording of a new blues tune Eli wrote. It’s about The Man and sticking it to him. We were going to devote this song to people tagging things like #work sucks. But, wonderfully, we couldn’t find anyone complaining about work. So instead, this song is devoted to these bloggers for their good music content—bodyandmusic, bluesucanuse, and somepeoplehatemusic—and to Emily at emilyfielderndad because she said she needs some inspiration, and we can empathize with that need. If interested, a whole album of Elijah Cash’s blues can be found here. Enjoy everyone!

         Company Time

    Well, I’ve been on company time
    for more years than I can count.
    I sold away my soul.
    I sold away my heart.
    Well, I’ve been stealing dimes the till,
    just taking pieces back to build a life.
    And I wrote the words to this song
    while I was on the clock.

    And Man, if you don’t like it,
    I guess I’ll walk.

    It’s good to have a job
    'cause it's good to feed your mouth.
    But if home is where the heart is,
    then I done sold the Man my house.
    Working here these years,
    has felt no different than when I did time.
    And I’m no thief,
    I’m just stealing back what’s rightfully mine.

    And Man, if you don’t like it,
    I guess I’ll walk.
