by Joel Sattler

he used to be a merchant marine
but there aint no future in that
he used to be a gambler
until he was busted flat
he used to have a woman
but there aint no goin' back
he used to be a brakeman
but the train done jumped the track
one day he run all out of luck
he lost all of the knack
and he felt he had no choice
but hit the road Jack Kerouac

he got a job on down in Soho
but one day he got the sack
he made it down to Mexico
until all his cash was tapped
ran out to the West Coast
thought he'd be a lumberjack
but the work looked awful hard
he was afraid of a bad back
he coulda been rich long ago
but was a born proletariat
so he had nothing left to lose
but hit the road Jack Kerouac

one day he started over
got the hell on out of there
he knew he'd have to write it out
but he didn't know how or where
sat down at the typewriter
and worked for 40 days and then
and when at last he finished
he took it to his bestest friend
they published it he made a mint
the dharma bums said welcome back
and now he'll never work again
Jack Kerouac
