Song Description

Someone who's got everything he really needs.

Story Behind the Song

The song started as a piano riff and gradually evolved into a story that could be about many of the hardworking people we know who just live life to the fullest and think the green of the grass on their side of the fence is just fine by them.

Lyrics

Poor Man

He likes to keep himself busy
Tries to bring home the bread
he's gotta pretty wife Izzy
he's gotta dream in his head

He walks to church on Sunday
With her hand in his hand
he likes to hear what the preacher says
'cuz, he knows he understands

He's just poor man
dirt on his face but a rock steady hand
He's just a poor man
But he's got grace in his heart
and he knows where he stands

he knows
he knows
he knows

He's gotta keep it together
'Cause life's a pretty big beast
Got the kids and the mortgage too and
the problem boy down the street

and on the porch come sundown
plays guitar drinks a beer
looks out over the neighborhood and says
Yeah I know why I'm here

He's just poor man
dirt on his face but a rock steady hand
He's just a poor man
But he's got grace in his heart
and he knows where he stands

He knows
He knows
He knows that it's a crazy world outside
There's nothing here to hide
So come on here inside

He's just poor man
dirt on his face but a rock steady hand
He's just a poor man
But he's got grace in his heart
and he knows where he stands
he knows
he knows
he knows...
