Little Man Lyrics - Alan Jackson

Review The Song (1)

"Little Man"

I remember walk'in round the court square sidewalk
Lookin' in windows at things I couldn't want
There's johnson's hardware and morgans jewelry
And the ol' Lee king's apothecary
They ware the little man
The little man

I go back now and the stores are all empty
Except for an old coke sign from 1950
Boarded up like they never existed
Or renovated and called historic districts
There goes the little man
There goes the little man

Now the court square's just a set of streets
That the people go round but they seldom think
Bout the little man that built this town
sponsored links
Before the big money shut em down
And killed the little man
Oh the little man

He pumped your gas and he cleaned your glass
And one cold rainy night he fixed your flat
The new stores came where you do it yourself
You buy a lotto ticket and food off the shelf
Forget about the little man
Forget about that little man

He hung on there for a few more years
But he couldn't sell slurpees
And he wouldn't sell beer
Now the bank rents the station
To a down the road
And sell velvet Elvis and
Second-hand clothes
There goes little man
There goes another little man

Now the are lined up in a concrete strip
You can buy the world with just one trip
And save a penny cause it's jumbo size
They don't even realize
They'er killin' the little man
Oh the little man

It wasn't long when I was a child
An old black man came with his plow
He broke the ground where we grew our garden
Back before we'd all forgot about the little man
The little man
Long live the little man
God bless the little man

the song reminds me of what I am currently going through with my business. I am the owner of an employment service and my former Insurance Company of my workers compensation policy has been a struggle for many years. I am currently working with the Department of Insurance and the Department of Labor and soon filing a court motion against my former Workers' Compensation Insurance Company so they can't shut me down. because they can hurt the "Little Man" without realizing they are hurting the "Little Man". I have a perponderance of evidence against them and I am going to do everything it takes to save my business, so they can't shut me down with their so called "big" money. They are greedy and want more money. Without the documentation through out the years I wouldn't be able to proceed with the Department Insurance and the Labor Department. By the time I get through with them, they will NEVER be able to do this to any other small business owner (The Little Man) again.
