Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Old Age Pension Check (Roy Acuff)
Subject: Old Age Pension Blues??
As a brand new member I feel a little reluctant to jump in and post right away, but what the heck, here goes.

I need the lyrics for a song that I think was called "Old Age Pension Blues". It was on one of the first New Lost City Ramblers records (you remember records, don't you? Big flat black things that looked like a licorice pizza???).

I think the first line was: "When the old age pension man comes to your door, Poor old grandma won't be lonesome anymore."

Anyone help me out on this. (I suppose I could break down and go buy the CD reissue of the darn thing).
