The other day
A fellow came into our office
And he said
I wish that I had done
Like Jim Brown did
He bought a lot, Jim did, and
He built himself a little home
The first year
And he planned it so he could
Build more onto his home
The next year
And he did, and
Now he's got a fine big home
Worth a lot of money
And he owns it
And it's his.
And I
Came to town about
The same time
Jim did
And I rented a house
Like a lot of other fellows
And the landlord sold the house
And I had to move
And I did
And I rented another house
And the landlord sold that
And I had to move again
And all I got now is
Some rent receipts
And I've got to move again
—Ain't that hell?
OWN YOUR OWN HOME
We can help you build, come around and
lets talk it over, you need the home, we need
the business.
