From the album Live! In Leiper's Fork

Lyrics

I went to work this mornin'
Foreman looked me in the eye
He said, "Fella I don't know what's wrong with ya
But you look sick enough to die"
He sent me to the company doctor
And he examined from head to toe
Whatever's wrong with ya, young man
My x-rays gonna show

Angel of mercy
Won't you please look down on me?
Angel of mercy
A little mercy is all I need

The finance company called
They ain't receive my check
They want payment by Friday
Or they want all the furniture back
I went to the credit union
Try and get myself a loan
They said, "We won't let ya have it young man
Cause we hear that you won't be workin' much longer"

Angel of mercy
Won't you please look down on me?
Angel of mercy
A little mercy is all I need

Oh they cut the lights off this mornin'
I set my furniture out doors
I was listenin' to the weatherman 'while ago
He's says it's gonna rain and so
My daughter's got pneumonia
My son got the flu
My whole family's sufferin' from malnutrition
And I can't even afford them soup

Angel of mercy
Won't you please look down on me?
Angel of mercy
A little mercy is all I need
