Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm gonna use what I got to get what I need
I'm gonna use what I use all I got
To get what I need, yeah
Verse 2
Look, I was born in a little old shack
Didn't have enough to eat
Not enough clothes on my back
Lord knows I kept the faith a heart full of woe
Now they're trying to get me at the end of my road
Verse 3
Use what I got to get what I need
I'm gonna use what I use all I got
To get what I need, yeah
Verse 4
The rich is content while the poor do without
If you ask for some herb
They don't know what you're talking about
All say they answer as if they're on the wind
It changes sometimes that why I'm afraid
Verse 5
I've gotta use what I got to get what I need
I'm gonna use what I use all I got
To get what I need, yeah
Verse 6
The road of life is mighty steep
When you're broke, busted and disgusted
For you ain't got nowhere to sleep
I'm gonna find me a woman to stand by my side
'Cause I'm so tired of running
Can't find no place to hide
Verse 7
I'm gonna use what I got to get what I need
I'm gonna use what I use all I got
To get what I need, yeah (Use what I got)
You know that I got to (Use what I got)
Said I've got to (Use what I got)
You gotta use it (Use what I got)
Use it all up now (Use what I got)
Yes I have (Use what I got)
I've got to, got to (Use what I got)
Said I got to (Use what I got)
