Hello everybody, today I have the first four lines from a Creedence Clearwater Revival song. My problem is in the first two lines, I can't figure out what "country welfare line" would mean and also "strung out on the line". I guess that "strung out" is a state when you are under the influence of drugs or tiredness but the whole meaning of the two lines is a complete mystery to me. I hope some native can help. Met myself a comin' county welfare line. I was feelin' strung out, Hung out on the line. Saw myself a goin', down to war in June. All I want, All I want is to write myself a tune. Thank you very much in advance !!
