Subject: Lyr Add: OUT OF BUSINESS (Little Jimmy Dickens)
This was suggested by Bert above:

As recorded by Little Jimmy Dickens

CHORUS: Sorry, I'm out o' business.
I'm not at your service anymore.
Yes, I'm sorry; I'm out o' business.
Get your work done where you got it done before.

My phone's been disconnected; I took my mailbox down.
If you come knockin' at my door, you'll find me out o' town.
I'm fed up with your lyin', so get this straight from me:
I ain't nobody's doggone fool, no sideline, no siree.

Now since I've thought it over, and I've made up my mind,
It's plain to see I'm slippin' so I'm leavin' you behind.
Gonna find a new location, and start out on my own.
Don't come around intrudin', for I'm a long time gone.

[Also recorded by Johnny Duncan & the Bluegrass Boys]
