The Old Bag Lady

Written by: Mark Brine
1. The old bag lady ... she nursed her coffee
‘til the manager came ‘n sent her away
from the warmth of the restaurant ...
Into the dark city’s cold nite
Frightened ‘n alone ... to await the break ‘a day
2. The old bag lady ... wouldn’t go to the mission
‘cause everybody knows ... It’s more dangerous there
for a  woman or a young boy ... they’re just the right prey
for the strong and the drunk men ...
that are always hangin’ ‘ round
The old bag lady ... you’ve seen her kind around
‘n maybe you turned your head to pretend
not t’ see what you had found
‘n folks’ll tell ya, that sin ...
Is just the wrong things that ya do
But, ya know, it’s just as much the things that ya don’t ...
Yeah, that’s just as Gospel truth
3. The mornin’s bitter wind cut like a knife
Down the iced ‘n glazin’ alley
As the dawn’s frozen sun shed
It’s lite on the place ... where the ...
Old bag lady ... lie silenced forever
Just another victim of neglect
Of an uncaring human race
