A Ballad of a Job Search

(If you need the tune: http://youtu.be/BZuWdfMoVBA)


Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Rob
Poor Jersey engineer put out of a job,
Then one day he was surfin' on the 'net,
And back through the wires come the best news yet.
(A Job that is, steady employ, paycheck)

Cost of livin' diff'rence lets'm live like millionaires,
Coworkers had said, "Jersey? Move away from there!"
Said Appalachia is the place you oughta be
So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Kentucky.
(Derby that is, distilleries, NASCAR)

Well now it's time to say goodbye to Rob and all his kin
They would like to invite you folks to kindly drop in,
You're all invited out to visit this locality
To have a heaping helping of their hospitality
(Western Kentucky, that's where they're livin' now, 
Paducah. Y'all come 'round now, ya hear?)
