Drake released no other singles, and died of unknown causes in 1984.


Born in Weir, Kentucky, Drake worked as a painter in the 1960s when he composed his only single, "Welfare Cadilac". According to him, he wrote the song in 1964 after seeing a rundown shack with a billboard on either side and ten children living inside, with a new Cadillac car sitting out front. The song is a satirical account of an impoverished parent living on welfare. After being rejected by several other record labels, it was released in 1970 as the first single from the independent Royal American Records label. It was a subject of controversy when Richard Nixon, then the President of the United States, asked Johnny Cash to perform the song at the White House, but Cash refused because he felt the song was degrading to recipients of welfare. The book Welfare in the United States: A History with Documents, 1935–1996 described "Welfare Cadillac" as "premised on stereotypes of welfare recipients as undeserving" and "contrast[ing] hard-working people who pay taxes with welfare recipients who get free commodities and drive brand-new Cadillacs".


Guy Drake (June 24, 1904 – June 17, 1984) was an American country music singer and comedian, best known for his 1970 hit "Welfare Cadillac".
