Sinner’s Song
© Douglas C.  Spears 2007

Saw him hudled ‘neath the depo stairs, still wet from last night’s rain,
He crossed himself in silent prayer while quietly he sang . . .

Jesus, Mary, Joseph , help me sing this sinner’s song,
I’m still short some stranger’s change that keeps me movin’ on,
Help me sing with heart and soul ‘til all my words are gone,
Jesus, Mary, Joseph , help me sing this sinner’s song.
    
    Lord the early morning air is damp and cold against this wall,
    They look right through me as they pass, now and then a coin will fall,
    I can hear the diesels humming now, my coach will soon be gone,
    To take me on the road again to somewhere else that I don’t belong.

    They never knew just where I’d gone, I never told ‘em why,
    For some the truth might set ‘em free, for some the truth’s a lie,
    Fences can’t be mended now, those tears have all run dry,
    What’s done is done and past is past, best just leave it ly. .

Jesus, Mary, Joseph , help me sing this sinner’s song,
I’m still short some stranger’s change that keep’s me movin’ on,
Help me sing with heart and soul ‘til all my words are gone,
Jesus, Mary, Joseph , help me sing this sinner’s song.

        If saints and sinners ever dance,
        If a fallen angel gets a second chance,
        I’ll sing this song of penitence,
        To open heaven’s doors.

    There’s little pity for the wayward and the weak,
    I’ve got no reason left to hide and noone left to seek,
    The bitter taste of wasted years still chokes me in my sleep,
    Loneliness is all I’ve sown and lonely’s all I’ll reap.
    
Jesus, Mary, Joseph , help me sing this sinner’s song,
I’m still short some stranger’s change that keep’s me movin’ on,
Help me sing with heart and soul ‘til all my words are gone,
Jesus, Mary, Joseph , help me sing this sinner’s song.

Jesus, Mary, Joseph help me sing this sinner’s song.
