What am I supposed to do?

Whitey Morgan wrote this for his latest album a year ago, its especially poingniant now.  Democrats delenda est.
I hired on in  ’85
February 28
They stuck me on that midnight shift
It became the job that I loved to hate
Met a girl and we said our vows
Tried for a kid, ended up with two
Now it seems that they’re shuttin’ this town down
What am I supposed to do?
What am I supposed to do, Lord?
What am I supposed to do?
When this is all I have ever known
What am I supposed to do?
I reside on the northeast side
Where the family settled back in ’33
I sold the car just to save the house
It’s gettin’ hard to hold on to anything
Well them union boys, they made some noise
In the end, they had to feed their families too
Them dues I paid, they can’t help me now
So what am I supposed to do?
What am I supposed to do, Lord?
What am I supposed to do?
When this is all I have ever known
What am I supposed to do?
I sit by as the city slowly dies
And I wonder about my fate
All the sympathy on the evening news
I’ve had about all I can take
I’m forty-five and I’ve got no place to hide
I’ve got nothing left to lose
Is this what I get after all that I gave?
What am I supposed to do?
What am I supposed to do, Lord?
What am I supposed to do?
When this is all I have ever know
What am I supposed to do?
What am I supposed to do, Lord?
What am I supposed to do?
When this is all I have ever know
What am I supposed to do?
