On the corner, rattling change
A weary beggar sings for his dinner
Saying the earth was good to me today
It gave me just enough to go on my way

And I was homeless when you found me
Took me in and put a tea kettle on
And the light washed over me, I was no beggar then
We were free like dust in the sunbeams

And while the mo-town records played
How I wanted you, whoah, but I knew
When the sun came up that morning
The world would find me on that corner
Alone to face the raging seas
To see my dreams and tragedies once more
