​Homeless Blues

This song is by John Hammond and appears on the album Long as I Have You (1998).

Rocks have been my pillow, baby, brambles have been my bed
Rocks have been my pillow, baby, brambles have been my bed
I ain't got nowhere baby, Lord to lay my aching head

I went out on the highway, baby, I tried to flag a ride
I went out on the highway, baby, I tried to flag a ride
Nobody seemed to know me, they keep on pass me by

You know I'm ragged and I 'm dirty, people I ain't got no place to go
You know I'm ragged and I 'm dirty, people I ain't got no place to go
I know you don't want me baby, Lord you don't love me no more


Now take me out of this old bottom, baby before your water rise
Now take me out of this old bottom, baby before your water rise
You know I ain't got no true religion, baby, I don't want to be baptized
