Sittin' here with a band of lonely men
Drinkin' beer and complaining all they can

Playin' games with bullets makin' bets
For the losers no one feels regrets

That girl she stole their hearts
And she played it very smart
Now they are found guilty of, the dropout blues

Behind a wall of rage,
up jumped their tainted fate
Shout it out and scream it out, the dropout blues

Help them Jesus,
tell them what to do
Everyone around me is feeling sad and blue

Help them Jesus,
tell them what to do
Make sure I won't catch none of their,
dropout blues

Drop me over here
Pick me up over there
Pray the hell today won't make me,
ravin' mad

Could it be a first next step?
Could it give my life more sense?

So I can shout it out, and scream it out,
the dropout blues
