Thread Name: Songs about the homeless
Subject: RE: Songs about the homeless
You're right Tim. Cowboys were hardly homeless in today's sense. Their home was the ranch, if not there, then their horse and bedroll was considered their home. Wanderer's, laboring for slave wages, yes. But hardly homeless. And if that's the case then most of Alice's songs don't fit, but who really cares. There're good songs.
