I slept last night in The Fairmont hotel
I went shoppin' today for jewels
Wind rushed around in the dirty town
And the children let out from the schools

I was standin' on a noisy corner
I was waitin' for the walkin' green
Across the street he stood and he played real good
On his clarinet for free

Now me, I play for fortune
And those velvet curtain calls
I got a black limousine and sixteen gentlemen
Escorting me to these halls

And I play if you have the money
Or if you're some kind of friend to me
But the one man band by the quick lunch stand
He was playin' real good for free

Nobody stopped to hear him
Though he played so sweet and high
They knew he had never been on their TV
So they passed his good music by

I meant to go over to him and ask for a song
Maybe put on some kind of harmony
I heard his refrain as that signal changed
He was playing real good and for free
