Ain't No Bread In The Breadbox

Lyrics: Norton Buffalo
Music: Norton Buffalo

Played regularly with JGB in the 1990s. (Wrongly listed on some setlists as "Open Up Your Heart")

Chorus
There ain't no bread in the bread box
'Cause we ain't got no dough
And it's seems like we ain't got enough time
To go foolin' around no more
I've been working so hard for oh so long
What've you got to show?
Open up your eyes little darling
Let's pack up your things and go
Open up your eyes little darling
Don't want to live here no more
Open up your eyes little darling
Been here for far too long
Open up your eyes little darling
It's time to move along

It was late into December
On a cold winter day
I'd just finished bringing wood into the kitchen
When I heard my Amanda say
She said "Elijah, you better look around
Things ain't like they used to be
Times getting hard for you and me
Come on daddy, it's time to shake things down"

[chorus]

[Later head] down in the middle of the city and I went up to her flat
Trying to make it through [life] with my child and my wife
And the world upon my back
I said sweet thing, you better hold me tight
Things ain't like they used to be
Times are hard for you and me
Come on baby, it's time to make things right

[chorus]
[chorus]
I've seen the following additional verse on other lyric sites: it looks like a combination of the first half of the second verse and the second half of the third verse.
Later in the city, ain't got nothin' to eat
Right there I made a fortune
She nearly ?????
I said, Delilah, you'd better look around
Things ain't like they used to be
Times is getting hard for you and me
Come on daddy, it's time to shake things down
