holes in both my pockets
a dollar tucked in my shoe
myclothes dirty and wrinkled
from sleepin in that old train
i passed me a bar on the corner
the sign read ten cents beer
i slipped off my shoe and got my dollar
thought i'd spend alittle in here
maggie i'm sorry tell the kids goodbye
you know i gave it one hell of a try
maggie i'm sorry tho you don't understand
that a drunk will sell his soul for a bottle if he can
the people were warm and friendly
and 90 cents was my change
i leaned back to take a swallow
then her memory appeared again
what do i do with your memory
that haunts me everyday
lord fogive me i couldn't see
what the drink was taking away
{chorus again}
i stepped back out on the corner
with nothin left in my shoe
iheaded back to that railroad track
to my home that ol train caboose
and as i sat alone that night
drnkin up my change
a tear in my eye oh i started to cry
as her memory appeared again
{chorus again}
