    The wages of an unskilled working man never paid enough
    From time to time a nickel on a race keeps him from giving up

    A blue collared man in Seattle never lives on white collared street
    But there was food on the table for my Washington woman and me

    The work slowed down and the one day
    The foreman laid me off
    That night in a tavern down on my last dime
    I met a girl from Arkensal

    Her daddy was a banker in Little Rock
    She had a mansion on white collared street
    The next morning my Washington woman woke up without me

    From city to city, and state to state, I get her in shame
    My Washington woman had six months left
    Before out child would bring her pain

    That Arkensal woman hurt me
    As we crossed the Arkensal line
    But the arms of Seattle
    Are the arms that kept huggin' mine

    For year I have basked in expensive wines
    Taste champagne every day
    I gave up all the things I loved
    For all these things I hate

    I locked up all of her forgiveness, the day I set myself free
    And the heart of my Washington woman stopped beating for me

    My Washington woman sends me a letter every once in a while
    Inside a folded wordless page is a picture of my child
    All but words, the room grows cold with a feeling of jealousy
    And there's a silence between
