Factory Boy

Mark "Smokey Lonesome" Brine

Written by: Mark Brine
1. You see him, early mornings as he stumbles in sight
His hat brim pulled down to block the daybreak light
His paper sack sways as he trudges on
past the little corner store and then he’s gone
Factory boy ... Factory boy
Got no time for childhood toys
(2. You got dreams but no time to enjoy ‘cause you’re prisoned)
(3. You got a dream you long to enjoy)
Imprisoned in the world of the adult employed
Oouu ... oouu ... oouu ... factory boy (2x)
2. Through the chain-linked fence ... Come lunchtime break
You see his sad face starin’ out lookin’ so forsaked
The world is slippin’ by ... he turns his head away
And stumbles ‘cross the yard to resume the working day
3. In the cool night air, he walks the freight yard tracks
Headin’ for home ... he never looks back
He only stares ahead and wishes for the day
When these winding railroad tracks will lead forever far away.
