Subject: RE: Songs about the homeless
No one seems to have mentioned larry Gatlin's version of Midnight Choir. I worked on Skid Row for a few years and his verse hits home.

Also try Fred J. Eaglesmith's song( can't remember the title. Short, acappela

Last night while walking city streets I came upon me for a dollar for something to eat But I gave him all that I had He mumbled his thanks Then he turned to go And I grabbed him by the arm I said, " mister what's your name?" he just shook his head, no, And he said, "It doesn't matter anymore."
