From the album The Great Unknown

A quieter folksy tune with a haunting cello part. Inspired by real life encounters with some of this planet's less fortunate folk, and the guilt generated by my good fortune...

Lyrics

An Old man in the dawn / just a running from the wild dogs
In the mist of Marrakesh / you thank your Djellaba for your flesh

CHORUS:
Oh / oh oh / yah
Stay by my side / won’t you / stay by my side ? (x2)

Old woman all alone/ with a shopping cart / her own
she’s The mother of the street/ not someone that you wanna meet

CHORUS

Put a twenty in the ladies jar/ slipped away into my car
texting on my new iPhone / hashtag honey I’m a coming home

CHORUS

Passing by that electric gate/ where my cottage awaits
It’s Just another day/ before the people have their say

CHORUS
