Veterans Day
#1
I wrote this song a while back after watching a news clip about homeless vets. I thought since tomorrow is Veterans Day I would post it. I can't seem to find a good melody for it. HELP!!


                                                        

                                                                The Street Where He Lives

Intro:

There's no fortune or fame attached to a soldiers name,
only scars and wounds for those who avoided the tombs.

Vs 1

So when you see him on a corner with a cup made of tin,
wearing clouds in his eyes, there's an emptiness within.
If you pass him by and your heart skips a beat,
just remember but for grace this could be your street.

Bridge

Life deals different hands, we all get a card,
life changes our plans, for some it's just hard.

Vs 2

As you reach out to grab that ring made of brass,
with your vision like a tunnel in a small looking glass.
Don't just walk on by, take a seat in his space,
unbridle your compassion, but don't outrun amazing grace.

Chorus

On the street where he lives nobody gives,
nobody listens to his song, he's been lonely too long.

Vs 3

Slow down, take the time, toss a coin in the cup
you may even have to bow down to give a hand up.
We may all need a net when we walk lifes tightrope,
we all need each other, faith, love and hope.

Chorus

On the street where he lives nobody gives,
nobody listens to his song, he's been lonely too long.
On the street where he lives, nobody gives,
then you came along
then you came along
