Thread Name: Songs about the homeless
Subject: RE: Songs about the homeless
I imagine you could find many on the romantic side of being a homeless drifter - "Gentle On My Mind", "Rainy Night In Georgia", "Go to Sleep My Weary Hobo", "Hallelujah, I'm a Bum" were my first thoughts. For something more melancholy I remember a Porter Wagoner song called "Skid Row Joe".
