1. Martin's Song

From the recording Martin's Song


Snow was falling down
All through the night
Mom was asleep
Crack pipe by her side

Father'd been long gone
Might as well have died
It was bitter cold
On that lonely night

Martin wandered out
Into neon lights
Hungry as could be
He began to cry

Looking up he saw
The shelter now in site
He wandered in
They fed him full that night

Snow kept falling down
As he lost his way
He could walk no more
It was getting late

He layed down to sleep
You could hear his cries
He would never wake
He was only five

He was only five
He was only five
