"The Kindness Of Strangers" as written by and Andrew Kenny....
There was no doubt
The moment was savored
With or without
Your dad's coda speaking out of anger
When word got out
The kid was in danger
Then we all went south
For skirting the chains of labor
For the kindness of strangers
So we all got out
For the kindness of strangers
And we just walked out
The kid was leaning on a leg to favor
But there was no doubt
The kid was in danger
'Cause she was cast out
But turned a corner and her dad forgave her
For the kindness of strangers

    General CommentUnfortunately, I think your mom is probably wrong. The liner notes make no mention of any lyricist besides Andrew.

    General CommentThere were several songs called The Kindness of Strangers, there was one by a band called Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, also a band called Onward, and The Simpsons but none of the same have the same lyrics so I don't think it's a cover.

    General CommentThe line, "I've always depended on the kindess of strangers" said by Blance DuBois in a Streetcar Named Desire is one of the most famous last lines of any play.. Or mabye it's the penultimate line. But there's gotta be some link.
