My father, talked to the man who worked the tugboats
My father, knew how to ride a horse and shoot a gun
My father, rode the rails
My father, worked in the apple orchards
My father, was in the army
My father, worked in a factory
My father, had a grocery store for 30 years,
and raised 7 children
My father, came to visit me in the stockade
during the war in Vietnam
My father, can't understand why I'm trying to make a living
singing songs

My mother, always smiles
My mother, was born and raised down on the farm
My mother, worked in a department store
My mother, married my father,
and moved north
My mother, worked in the grocery store for 30 years
bore and raised 7 children
My mother, refused to come and see me when I was in the stockade during the war in Vietnam
My mother, can't understand why I'm trying to make a living
singing songs

Me, I'm just standing here
I, was born in Brooklyn
I had an unhappy childhood
I worked in the grocery store
I was drafted
I refused to go to Vietnam
Now, I'm just standing here
And sometimes, I can't understand why I'm trying to make a living
singing songs

Now, it's 20 years later
My parents sold the grocery store and moved to Florida
I live in Kingston with my wife and son
I never got over being in the stockade
I'm trying to make any kind of living I can
My wife is very understanding
My son loves war games
I'm very happy
I still sing songs
Music fills my soul
Music fills my life
Music is my joy.
