Lyrics

Away look before I never answer
Today came and went before I knew
I saw you in the park behind the statue
That's when I got interested in you

Your bags and your blankets were all neatly folded
Your boy and your puppies out to see
Your eyes were bright as they took in all the street
How could you have known to notice me?

I'll never walk this way again
No matter when or why
The look your boy gave me
Will beset me till I die

"Hey, can you give me just a dollar fifty?"
The voice made me stop and turn around
My cash was in my hand before I even heard the sound
There's so many folks who need it in this town

Your boy came on over to collect the money
With his head down he looked the other way
His eyes didn't meet mine till he turned to walk away
His backward glance said all there was to say

I'll never walk this way again
No matter when or why
The look your boy gave me
Will beset me till I die

Driving back home
I felt so proud and good
A dollar fifty lighter
A good deed under the hood
Your tidy little family
Each one plays their part
You keep it all together
Your boy rips the marks apart

Away look before I never answer
Today came and went before I knew
I saw you in the park behind the statue
That's when I got interested in you
