I’m sitting downtown
Crying ‘neath a statue of Jesus
Both of us lonely and cold
I hope no one can see us
I know I’m drunk, yeah, but I don’t think that he’d care
Surely he must understand these crosses that I bear
So I’m sitting downtown
Crying ‘neath a statue of Jesus

Sometime I think she’s right
I ain’t worth a shit
A wife and kids to feed
And here I sit
I swear to God I try, but I just don’t think I fit
Daddy always said everything I touched, it turned to shit
So I’m sitting downtown
Crying ‘neath a statue of Jesus

I did thirty days hard
For stealing cigarettes
How’s a man supposed to tell
His children that
I swear to God I try, but I just don’t think I fit
Daddy always said everything I touched, it turned to shit
So I’m sitting downtown crying ‘neath a statue of Jesus
I’m sitting downtown
Crying ‘neath a statue of Jesus
