Maybe You Heard

 

Maybe you heard, your ole buddy's gone crazy

Searching for words, too deep, sweet reason and rhyme

Living alone, more and more and he's prone to be lazy

Turning to stone, blasted and blind

 

***Chorus

         Don't turn away there, hey, goddamn you, he was your brother

         Turn on your father, sister, mother

         Brother, he was your friend

         Don't you condemn him

         Leave it to strangers

         You ought to know him

         Give him a hand, if you can

         But at least for Jesus Christ's sake, understand him

 

Maybe you heard, that they say that the lady's been changing

Day after day, more than her mind

Learning to play, where the part has her turning to strangers

Going too far, line after line

 

Don't turn away there, hey, goddamn you, you used to love her

Turn on your father, sister, mother

Mister, she was your friend

Don't you condemn her, leave it to strangers

You ought to know her, give her a hand, if you can

But at least for Jesus Christ's sake, understand her
