“Under the Statue”

There is a man
Sitting on the stone steps
Of the statue
He’s dressed in black
But the black is dirty
And his body unwashed
One broken man
Among the ranks
Of the homeless
Waiting at the bus station
For a bus that will
Probably never come
Lying next to him
In a beat up case
Resides his hope
His hand reaches down
To rest upon
The wooden body
He will never truly
Be alone

And there is a guitar man
At Kennedy Plaza
Homeless not hopeless
He has six strings to hold him up (repeat x1)

There is a guitar man
At Kennedy Plaza
Waiting for a bus that will
Probably never come
Lying next to him
In a beat up case
Resides his hope

No matter what surrounds
I will never be put down
As long as I have this music in my hand
No matter what comes round
I will never be thrown to the ground
As long as I have this music in my hand

And there is a guitar man
At Kennedy Plaza
Homeless not hopeless
He has six strings to hold him up
