Hoboes And Kings

Goldsboro, Bobby

Band/Artist: Goldsboro, Bobby

Album: Today

And you see him by the railroad track each morning
Telling stories to the hobos sitting round
And you wonder 'bout the past that he is hiding
And the things that made his whole world tumble down
And he tells them of his kingdom and his riches
And all the sunken treasure that he's found

And he tells them not to worry bout tomorrow
That for all of them a new life would begin
They would never see another day of sorrow
'Cause he always takes good care of all his friends
And you see a look of hope on all their faces
Though they've heard the story time and time again

And you look into the eyes of those around you
And you know that they're believing every word
'Cause when you look at him your looking in a mirror
And you make yourself believe the things you've heard
And all though he gets his stories from a bottle
You find yourself believing every word

And you realize that somehow he's a savior
In his tattered clothes to them he is a king
'Cause he gives them one more day that they can live for
And the promise of the joy that it will bring
And you wonder what will happen in the morning
When they find that they no longer have their king

For his eyes are closed but he's no longer sleeping
And their king will no longer be around
And you'll see a look of fear on all their faces
As they see their hopes and dreams come tumbling down
So you quickly drink a story from the bottle
And all at once you now possess the crown

And they'll find you by the railroad track each morning
Telling stories to the hobos sitting round
And they'll wonder about the past that you are hiding
And the things that made your whole world tumble down
And you'll tell them of your kingdom...
