"Blind Tom " as written by and Grant Lee Phillips....
Tom's at the piano
Talking to a ghost
playing with his eyes shut tight
Here's a little song I learnt it from the wind
heard it on the wind last night

Beats working in the field
for a little blind boy
playing in the dime museum
day the colonel came
and he take you by the hand
what a lucky day for him

When Tom is at the bench
his hands are not his own
some spirit in the room takes hold
never seen the sun much less read a note
but he make you want to tap your toes

Make your daddy proud
make your daddy rich
some candy and cake for Tom
Till the crowd dies down
and the Colonel's in the grave
and the candy and cake are gone

Tom's at the piano
talking to a ghost
playing with his eyes shut tight
Here's a little song I learnt it from the wind
Heard it on the wind last night
