Subject: RE: Songs about the homeless
unfortunately the topic is quite a "popular" one-- prolific one.

There is an annual radio program called the Homelessness Marathon.
It is a 14 hour program that airs each year...in Feb. i think...and here are some of the songs I play during it..
Homeless by Lou and Peter Berryman it is on page 4 here

heard on the wonderful Women's Bluegrass Group album Blue Rose
