Oh, it's time for every man to be awake We pay fifty cents a pound when we ask for steak When we get our package home A little wad of paper with gristle and bone Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live? Most all preachers preach for gold and not for souls That's what keeps a poor man always in a hole We can hardly get our breath Taxed and schooled and preached to death Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live?

How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live?" is an American folk song originally recorded on December 4, 1929 in New York City. It was written, composed, and performed by Blind Alfred Reed, accompanying himself on the violin. The song tells of hard times during the Great Depression. It is considered an early example of a protest song. There was once a time when everything was cheap. But now prices almost puts a man to sleep. When we pay our grocery bill, we just feel like making our will.
