Ce titre controversé de JB Lenoir, Eisenhower Blues,enregistré en avril 1954, a dû être renommé sous la pression de Parrot Records Tax Paying Blues. Ike Eisenhower avait été élu un an plus tôt et resterait président jusqu'en 1961.

Hey everybody, I was talkin' to you
I ain't tellin' you jivin', this is the natural truth
Mm mm mm, I got them Eisenhower blues
Thinkin' about me and you, what on earth are we gonna do?

My money's gone, my fun is gone
The way things look, how can I be here long?
Mm mm mm, I got them Eisenhower blues
Thinkin' about me and you, what on earth are we gonna do?

Taken all my money, to pay the tax
I'm only givin' you people, the natural facts
I only tellin' you people, my belief
Because I am headed straight on relief
Mm mm mm, I got them Eisenhower blues
Thinkin' about me and you, what on earth are we gonna do?

Ain't got a dime, ain't even got a cent
I don't even have no money to pay my rent
My baby needs some clothes, she needs some shoes
Peoples I don't know what I'm gonna do
Mm mm mm, I got them Eisenhower blues
Thinkin' about me and you, what on earth are we gonna do?
