"Every Mother's Son [Acoustic]" as written by Mark Adrian Niedzwiedz and Robyn Smith....
One two three four
The last time I saw her she was wavin' me goodbye
She swore no other boy would take my place
I took a Mississippi Queen through New Orleans and down the bayou
I hoped to find my destiny, my fortune and my face

Please tell her that I said hello
Explain to her I didn't wanna go
But the message from her daddy said
He's gonna see me dead
And if I can get out now, she'll never know
She'll never know, never know

I stayed around, I played around with all those Southern belles
But they took away my money and my pride
I had no place to go and the rest you know darn well
Livin' out the gutter ain't so easy to describe

But I still had my guitar, so I joined a dirty band
Workin' in a smoky downtown bar
When comes along this big wheel with a contract in his hand
Said, 'put your mark along here boy
I'm gonna make you a Rock 'n' Roll star'


Well the years have come and gone
And I was passing through to find
That my home town was still the same to see
Well, the memory I had of her had crumbled from my mind
I really didn't think she'd still be waiting here for me



And if I can get out now, she'll never know
Never know, never know
...never know, never know.
