  2. Whole lot of people bought automobiles
    Didn't know how they's a-gonna feel
    Rode around so grand and proud
    Note's come due, couldn't pay it out
    All they got's gone, all they got's gone

    Hmmm.. things haven't changed much on some things in 80 years.

    1. Yeah . . . the old cliché "the more things change the more they stay the same."
