Subject: Empty Pocket Blues
Am I missing a verse or verses to this Brownie McGee song?

EMPTY POCKET BLUES
I never had a pocket full of money
Never had a big Cadillac
All I every had was you, babe
Now, you know that's a fact

Chorus
I've got the blues…
The empty pocket blues
I've got the blues…
The empty pocket blues

Some people got barrels full of money
Oceans of ruby red rings
They ain't got a girl like mine
And they don't know how to sing

Don't put your money in a barrel
Don't waste it on ruby red rings
Give it all to your own little girl
She'll fix your dinner while you sing

Thanks, Fortunato
