Thread Name: Songs about the homeless
Subject: RE: Songs about the homeless
Any of the traditional Beggarman songs would be appropriate. I remember hearing one--the first verse is all that I remember:

Of all the trades in England, the beggin' is the best, For when a beggar's tired, he can sit him down to rest.

CH: Oh a beggin' I will go, oh a beggin' I will go.
