"Hard Times"

Say buddy can you spare some change
This ain't no story for a bottle of wine
On the corner there's a diner
My need is really genuine
A warm cup of soup is all I desire
A few crackers on the side
Just enough to keep me goin'
To keep my feet in stride
The bitter cold jus' got to me
I know it's not your fault
I'm just down on luck right now
Standing on asphalt
Askin' for a little help to get me on my way
Soon I'll fade from memory
And you can have the day
I'm not privy to livin' like this
To be in rough disdain
Thanks alot in advance mister
Then I must refrain
Another day-another dollar
Tomorrow will bring a chance
For me to make it one more day
To change my circumstance
