Thread Name: Songs about the homeless
Subject: RE: Songs about the homeless
ooops, don't know how that posted twice. Over the holidays I memorized the two verses I have in an old book of "Home Sweet Home" to sing along with "Auld Lang Syne".. They are both such classics that we think we know them almost too well, but I realized that I had never really paid attention to all of "Home Sweet Home" before.
2nd verse
An exile from home, splendor dazzles in vain
Oh, give me my lowly thatched cottage again.
The birds, singing gaily, that come at my call.
Give me them with the peace of mind, dearer than all.

Then there's that instrument joke... What do you call a bodhran player (banjo player, etc. etc.) without a girlfriend??.......homeless. alice, mt
