"Song to a Dead Man" as written by and Larry Poons T. Bone Burnett....
When I was a kid, I was really young
I fell in love and I got stung
I tried it out and I tried it on
When I was a kid, I was really young

When I was a kid everything was new
I had a lot of friends, I couldn't even get close to
And I tried so hard that I got confused
When I was a kid, everything was new

When I was a kid, I was on my own
I had a mother and a father, till I was almost grown
But when I was alone, I was all alone
When I was a kid, I was on my own

When I was a kid, I got off the track
I walked down the road and I never did turn back
God deliver me from this case in fact
When I was a kid, I got off the track
