lyrics

Minding my own business like thirty years before
When a hungry little man came a knocking on my door
He had nowhere to run to. He had no place to go
He had no friend to lean on. He was a lonely restless soul.
I turned him away

‘Please good sir’, he said, ‘Don’t turn me from your door.
‘I am a hungry man. I’m lonely and I’m poor, and
I have nowhere to run to. I have no place to go
I have no friend to lean on. I am a lonely restless soul.
Please don't turn me away!'
Well I turned him away.

I couldn’t stand the look of the man
The brand of his clothes. The cut of his hair. The smell of his breath

Your judging stare, it burns into my face
But I ask you the question, if you were in my place, and
He had nowhere to run to. He had no place to go
He had no friend to lean on. He was a lonely restless soul.
You'd turn him away

I think you'd turn him away ...

You couldn’t stand the look of the man
The brand of his clothes. The cut of his hair. The smell of his breath.
