Thanks so much!!



How Could This Be

by : BK Williamson © 7/29/2015


Not long ago

I was happy an' free

Had a good job

with an executive key

Handed me a towel

when I went to pee

Now I go in the ally

where people can see

They see, they see, they see, they see


I'm out in the street now

just makin' my way

Beatin' my feet down

the pavement today

My life's in a tin can

with coins I bum

I wander the city an'

get burned by the sun

The sun, the sun, the sun, the sun



Oh this is America, so tell me

How could this be

Land of the brave an'

home sweet home of the free

Yeah this is America

from the mountains to the sea

This is the land I love, so tell me

How could this be


Nothin' but sadness

makin' me cry

People are laughin'

an' passin' me by

Why can't they see how

my heart is in pain

I used to be them

They called me by name

By name, by name, by name, by name


Out in the real world

lost and afraid

For whatever reason

plans that I made

fall by the wayside

wither an' die

Caught in a riptide

No use to fight

To fight, to fight, to fight, to fight


Chorus: =======
