Every last blind pulled when I walk down the street
The only sound I hear is my tired heartbeat
Well, sometimes I feel just like a motherless child, yeah
Motherless child, yeah

This place once had a name, the people once had faces
In every town I find it's the same sad situation
Sometimes I feel just like a countryless man, yeah
Countryless man, yeah

My father tried to break me, my mother, she tried to raise
The county correct me from my wild ways
My father tried to break me, my mother, she tried to raise
The county correct me from my wild ways

I once saw figures about a mile off
So I waited in the woods until they were gone
Sometimes I feel just like a wandering dog, yeah
Wandering dog, yeah

My father tried to break me, my mother, she tried to raise
The county correct me from my wild ways
My father tried to break me, my mother, she tried to raise
The county correct me from my wild ways
