Will Work For Food

Another song from Peter Rowan’s Bluegrass Boy CD.

Time was a man felt like something
Working for hard earned pay
When you’ve got nothing, nobody gives nothing
Not even the time of day

     Homeless and hungry
     I done everything that I could
     Heartbroke and homeless and hungry
     I will work for food

There’s a ramshackle shack in the country
Where a willow weeps over the door
I wander the streets of your city
No home in this world no more

Policeman told me this morning
Pack up and be on my way
Begging ain’t no part of nothing
Hard times are here to stay
