lyrics

Momma's got a new pair a shoes,
Momma's got a new pair a blues,
There's a fire in Tennesse,
There's an earthquake in D.C.
But she's a winner,
Her blue ribbon's are made of smoke

And Daddy's gunna make some money,
Daddy's gunna bring us honey to eat,
While he's in the kitchen,
Cooking with gasoline,
He's a winner,
His blue ribbons are made of smoke

[Ahh, Ooh, Ahh, Ooh]

Sister's got her body,
Sister's got nobody to heal,
Her broken-hearted wheel,
Spinning till the end,
When she's a winner,
Her blue ribbons are made of smoke

Now Brother's got some soul for sale,
Brother's got some soul
That could save the world from itself,
If he could save himself
He'd be a winner,
His blue ribbons made of smoke...

[Blue ribbons made of smoke]

But as for me I got these eighty-eight,
As for me I got these ivories
To keep me company,
When I'm dead and gone
I'll be a winner,
My blue ribbons made of smoke

[Ahh, Ooh, Ahh, Ooh]
