sed DTStudy: When A Fellow Is Out Of A Job (4) Lyr Add: When A Fellow Is Out Of A Job 18 Nov 02


The version printed in the Digitrad substitutes for the words I remember Grant Rogers singing at a concert in DC about 1971.
See the lyrics I remember in [*] below:

Every man that's a man wants to help push the world
But he can't, if he's out of a job.
He's left out behind, on a shelf he is curled
When a fellow is out of a job.
He feels he's no part in the whole of the plan,
An obsolete cog, only half of a man   [*he's got the old mitten from nature's own hand}
And the world isn't what he's had it to plan [*he's truly rejected; a left-over man]
When a fellow is out of a job.

Steve Sedberry

PS Also I think Grant's Folk-Legacy lp album has the above [*] words.
