Just Another Woman

Called Homeless

Junie walks a lonely street
She makes her rounds in bare feet
It used to be so easy to get by,

But now her luck has come and gone
The law just keeps her moving on
She’s getting good at watching her dreams die....

I used to see her with her man
Quiet days hand in hand
They’d take on what the world had to give,

But now those dreams are yesterday
Times are gone when Junie would say “I Love You”
She was happy just to live....

Now Junie stands there all alone
Friends don’t visit her downtown home
It’s hard to see a good girl this far down,

As darkness sets her distant voice
Is crystal clear through city noise
Thank God, she cries,
Kissing money that she is found...

I used to see her with her man
Peaceful days hand in hand
They’d take on what the world had to give,

But now those dreams are yesterday
Times are gone when Junie would say “I Love You”
She was happy just to live
Junie was happy just to live...
