You've got a cardboard house
Live there all the time
Keep your memories tied with string

The face that many once adored
Twenty years gone maybe more
Somewhere you lost the dream

Mama watched your every move
But now you're all alone
Yeah she's been gone for awhile

Daddy left some time ago
Fading years pass too slow
He's the only one, could make you smile, smile

Oh, you're still crying

Big city bound gonna make your mark
Read your name in the lights
All the ads and people say, beauty let's you get you way
Tried your best to prove them right

But living on the streets ain't bad
Sad people make you glad
Pardon me, could you spare some change?

Oh, you're still crying

Street corner girl watch the crowd go by
Fill your tin can with life, summer days tend to slip away
Like your men you couldn't make them stay
Hard to choose, whiskey or a wife

Sometimes you wonder where's the end
Where you goin' where you been?
Happiness seems so hard to win

Most never care to find
Della Brown sees it all the time
Looking for that man to make her smile again

Oh, you're still crying
