man got shot / Joe Roarty

watt was he doin
late at nite
on that street
wher thr was no lite

some wr yng
som wr old
walkn down th street
n th wind & cold

it don't mattr
watt time of day
wn its time 2 go
u go away

walk around like u no
u don't no nothn

they call u on th fone
tell u wher 2 go
do watt yr told
nothn gonna happn

see m onna bus
see m onna train
see m n th wind
see m n th rain

if it hadda happn
glad it wasn't me
if it hadda happn
that th way it gotta b

just anothr man
just anothr one
wipd away
n th flash of a gun

just anothr one

lyn on th sidewalk
lyn n th street
lyn n th cold
lyn n th heat

did u hear
on th rong side of town
sombody walkn
got shot down

walkn n th street
sittn n a car
wrkn n a store
drinkn n a bar

som wr damnd
som wr savd
som wr fearfl
som wr brave

thrs a candl
on th cornr
thats th place
he fell etrnl

som had hope
som had nothn
som an urn
som a coffn

do u remmbr
who he was
dyn alone
for no cos
