suzy left home at the age of 15
with money saved from raking leaves
she left on a bus that was destined for Providence, R.I.
coming from Texas she's now just a dot on the map

in just one week she had met John Meyers
he was 18, but twice her age
he taught her the ways of the street, but he kept her at his side
she finally escaped with her son just as i had turned 3

i met my own when i made it back east on my own
he was working retail at a sporting goods store downtown
i asked him about all the fishing pole lines and i listened
his voice so familiar as he showed me how to reel in
