  • Lyrics: V1 I met an old Woman Living in a train station Singing for change Living in poverty Through the roar of the working man She reached out and took my hand I watched the world rush on by and I wondered why She called on me V2 We sat down along the wall Her eyes seem to grow so tall How long we sat I’ll never know She began to speak so slow The crowd just rush on by Her voice carried long and high Like a song in harmony She spoke to me (she said) Chorus Keep on the road Don’t turn your back Give yourself a stronger dose Than you think you can hack Don’t believe that you got something That others lack And whatever you do Don’t turn your back V3 Every day I watch you walk your route The things you love you live without You live your life in Black and white I guess that’s alright Who’s got two instead of one Holds the power wields the gun But whose got none ain’t got a thing What’s it to him the power a gun brings Chorus V4 How many times in a day Do you let your heart go astray How many times do you try To let what’s real slip on by You got your things you paid your price With possession comes sacrifice So play the cards that you been dealt You ain’t poor if you’re living well Chorus V5 She stopped her mouth and shook her head Like she regretted what she said She looked at me with a worried mind And said now brother can you spare a dime In a rush of anxiety I pushed that woman away But I’m reminded every day Of those few words she had to say (she said) Chorus
