His father died at the age of 80
And he was just a little boy of three
His momma, she was still a young lady
So she got down on her knees

Crying won't somebody save me

She'd settle for less just to be able
To keep the banker from foreclosing on the farm
And old prince charming didn't like children
So she took her only son into her arms

Crying won't somebody save me

She carried him all the way into the town
Took him to the place where children go
when they have nowhere else to go
she said oh please won't you take me baby
then she turned to face the cold October snow

Crying won't somebody save me

And when he was 12 years old he just ran away
Working on the railroad
Working in the coal mine
Saving childhood for another day
And when he was seventeen he joined the army
Oh and Vietnam would bring him to his knees

Crying won't somebody save me

So I grew up nit knowing my grandpa
Because that little boy grew up to be an angry old man
They say you can't know someone until you have walked in their shoes
I don't know much, but I know this to be true

So I'm crying, no I don't blame you
