Frenchman Street

SHARE

He was just 9 when he ran away
With a bag of clothes and 20 dollars to pay
His mother had died and his dad was a drunk
Beating him until the poor boy sunk

There’s a light in the distance of that I’m sure
And all these troubles will be no more
And maybe one day the birds will sing
A song that I love and a song I can bring
Somewhere deep into my soul

A man saw him standing with his thumb near the road
Not a car had stopped and not a car had slowed
He offered him water and something to eat
On the noisy corners of frenchman’s street

There’s a light in the distance of that I’m sure
And all these troubles will be no more
And maybe one day the birds will sing
A song that I love and a song I can bring
Somewhere deep into my soul

In his new home the boy found he was gifted
With a talent he never even knew existed
And after a while the boy finally found
That he could play the guitar with a unique sound

There’s a light in the distance of that I’m sure
And all these troubles will be no more
And maybe one day the birds will sing
A song that I love and a song I can bring
Somewhere deep into my soul
