​One Man Singin'

This song is by Malcolm Holcombe and appears on the album To Drink The Rain (2011).

I heard him singin' in a local dive
Where the sun shines inside out
Where people go and stay a little while
Some folks listen and others don't
But everyone is there waitin' to hear what they can take
To make their lives a little better

One man caught my ear and I let go of my hands
I couldn't help myself but try to listen
To songs about dancin' in everybody's shoes
And colors of the rainbow all shaded with the blues

Now what do people do when they do what they do
Why do people say what they say anyway
Tomorrow mornin's comin' soon
Tomorrow mornin's comin' soon

Cigarettes and simple smiles
Booze and calculated frowns
The crowd was a doin' the right thing
They came in here to hear one man sing

The soul of his voice was familiar to the marrow
My heart turned loose of my head
And the pain in my chest it stopped just a second
But that was enough
One man singin' was enough

Now what do people do when they do what they do
Why do people say what they say anyway
Tomorrow mornin's comin' soon
Tomorrow mornin's comin' soon
