Louisiana Red – Midnight Rambler

Well ok- the link I have isn’t actually Midnight Rambler.  It’s labelled “The Lowdown Back Porch Blues” but includes a number of bonus tracks notably this one from Midnight Rambler.
Check out the lyrics to “too poor to die
Last night I had a dream
I dream I died
The undertaker came
To carry me for the ride
I couldn’t afford a coffin
Embalmin’ kinda high
I jumped off my deathbed
Cause I too poor to die
I’s in trouble
And I’ll tell you the reason why
I’m just too poor people
I’m too poor to go lay down and die
