Song Description

This song draws the listener in with compassion and takes him to Uganda, Haiti, El Salvador, Lebanon and Somalia to hear the pleading cries of the children who do not have enough to eat. Keep your kleenex handy and be prepared to empty out your piggy bank and send the money to World Vision.

Story Behind the Song

I care about starving children, so I wrote this song.

Lovely voice. Clear & precise. Interesting subject matter

    - Ghost Within

A song packed full of message and political weight! Great vocal performance, honest and beautifully raw. Nice simple guitar wich gives the listener space to concentrate on the lyrics while the pathos rolls on underneath. This would work well at a rally or demo I would imagine , reminded me of Julie Felix a little, a good straight forward singer songwriter performance, thanks, I really enjoyed it.

Lyrics

Feed Me, I'm Hungry


I live in Uganda; my country is a mess
No rain, no crops, no clothes to wear, political unrest.
I wish they hadn't killed my cow; she kept me alive.
I keep hopin' things'll get better, but I only see more strife.

My country is El Salvador; my mom and dad are dead.
Some men in green murdered them; they want my country red.
Me, I don't care which color; I only need some bread
To stop this awful gnawing and this pounding in my head.

Chorus: Feed me I'm hungry.
I need a bowl of rice; I'm hungry.
To keep me alive; I'm hungry
Oh Mister, please...I'm so hungry.

I used to live in Lebanon, don't know where I am now.
My mom and I keep runnin' but I really don't know how,
How we can keep on runnin' to escape the fiery blast
Will there be food in the next camp? I can no longer fast.

I'm from the hills of Haiti, my mom's eleventh child.
But six of us have died now; the other five run wild
To search the garbage heaps each day to find a bit of meat.
My daddy tries to work each day; he really wants to feed.....

I live in Somalia; the land is dead and dry.
I can't...find food...no matter how hard I try.
So I'll just lay my bag of bones down in this hunger line,
But I don't know if food will come; the truck was bombed last time.

Next time you say, "I'm hungry", my friend, please think twice.
Remember the starving who need a bowl of rice.
In Jesus' name, please give to them so they can stay alive.
You may not hear their thank you's, but they'll no longer cry:
