Walkin' down Canal Street knockin' on some doors
God damn son of a bitch I wish that I was warm
Finally a door opened and they let me in
God damn son of a bitch Ice hanging from my chin
Soon the ice was melting and dripped upon the floor
God damn son of a bitch They shoved me out the door
They said to me hey mister the mission's down the street
God damn son of a bitch I couldn't feel my feet
I made it to the mission they led me to a bed
God damn son of a bitch I think my feet are dead
Now I lie and wonder bout the children I have seen
God damn son of a bitch Society's so mean
I used to have a nice house a job that I adored
God damn son of a bitch Now that is no more
I have a lot to offer please listen to my cry
God damn son of a bitch I don't want to die

I worked hard all my life and tried to do what's right
Always helping others and strive d with all my might
Now I feel all alone no-ones got my back
Everything that I own is in this gunny sac

I know I'm not alone now many others face this fate
It seems the bottom has dropped out and left us in this state
I wish I knew the answer prayers don't seem to work
I'm tired of all the lying from people who are jerks

Now I miss my Harley and my fancy car
God damn son of a bitch No money for the bar
Life was going so good I could never see
God damn son of a bitch This happening to me
I don't want no pity and I feel no shame
God damn son of a bitch There' only me to blame
If I get back on my feet things will surely change
God damn son of a bitch Nothing's out of range
Short Song Description:
It's about a homeless person!
Long Song Description:
This is kind of snappy feeling but it's about a person who became homeless and is trying to make the best of the situation. I think most of us have been there at one time in our lives if not more. It's something that should not happen to anybody.
Story Behind the Song:
It was something that was kicking around in my head for a long time
