Song Description

A "little pot" can become a horrible addiction that takes lives.

Story Behind the Song

What starts off as a young man who likes to smoke it up and strikes out on his own ends up being a junky found dead under the railroad track overpass.

Lyrics

Guess there's things that you should have known
Beaten down and worn to the bone
Guess you wanted out on your own
Broken down and far from home

Guess he was morally free
Pushed by society
The leaf wasn't what it seemed
Harder stuff fixed the need

Chorus:
The poor corpse under the tracks
Couldn't get by won't make it back
Spoon needle and the tracks
Wasted soul threw out his chance
The poor soul under the tracks
The poor corpse under the tracks

Guess the dollars and the greed
Are good for political need
Guess won't worry about the disease
Just the power and the ease

Chorus

Guess that tokin' its ok
So I hear so they say
Guess his ma won't see it that way
Funeral bells tolling today

Chorus

Mamma left so sad
Poor boy wont' make it back
Mamma left so very sad
Her poor boy is under the tracks...
