"Poor Boys" as written by and White Fahey....
Poor boy in the country
And he helps me find my way
Poor boy's life is easy
Cause he goes from day to day
If I stop
Think a lot
I think of everything I got around this town

Old man sitting next to me
With new shoes on his feet
He says that when he is all alone
He talks himself to sleep
Then he stops
Then he stares
At all the people passing there without a word

Do we still belong around here
Where the days roll on
Like a carousel
Quiet fields of green and blue
But there's nothing there
Like her love shining through
Whoa oh
Hidi high li

We rolled in from Taurus
And now we're half a world away
And everything that I can think
To soon too late to say
Next thing it occurs to me
She can sleep so quielty
When we're alone

So good night all you poor boys
Try to make your way back home
These songs aren't for singing
When you're traveling alone
Now and then I wait around
So I can hear the lonely sound
Of outbound trains

Do we still belong around here
Where the days roll on
Like a carousel
Quiet fields of green and blue
But there's nothing there
Like her love shining through
High li li li
High li li li li li
Oh whoa whoa

And I don't think it's ever rang so hard
On the back streets of Carolina yard
And the poor boys have often been frustrated
At the thought of coming home
I heard good night you'll be all right I know
I heard songs in the alleys and the road
I heard all different kinds of conversation
And the float around this town

And the hey hey now
And the hey hey
Whoa da ho
High li li li
