A very simple blues tune. I would love to hear what people think of this track.
Waterbury, CT - May 14, 2009
Las Vegas, NV - Dec 11, 2010 (Final Show of Leonard's 3 year World Tour) INCREDIBLE!
Boston, MA - Dec 15, 2012 (Best L.C. concert I've been to!)

Couldn't pay the mortgage
And it broke my baby's heart
I couldn't pay the mortgage
It broke my baby's heart
I never gave nobody trouble
But it ain't too late to start

Don't wanna break no window
Don't wanna burn no car
Don't wanna break no window
And I don't wanna burn your car
You got a right to all your riches
But you let it go too far

You sail the mighty ocean
On a yacht designed for you
You sail the mighty ocean
On a yacht designed for you
Yeah, but the ocean's thick with garbage
You ain't gonna make it through

I never gave nobody trouble
I'm a law and order man
I never gave nobody trouble
I'm a law and order man
I said, I never gave nobody trouble
But you know god damn well that I can
Thanks to Rachel for the corrections!

Not sure about ordinary man.
Hi Roman,

The line you're not sure of is: "I'm a law and order man"

Also, in the previous verse, it's: "yeah, but the ocean's thick with garbage"

And another very tiny correction (sorry for my compulsiveness): "you got a right to all your riches"

Rachel, you must be kidding - THANK YOU for your scrupulousness! I've made all the corrections.
