Track #8 from the album Empty Through Empty Space by Jeremy Wilson released March 2014


Let a Poor Man Beg

Well, the gig was up
I was already near mile 444
In my rear view mirror
Lake Ochachobee became my every thought

Make time stop
And let a poor man beg
In the light of a fare young made

In New Orleans I got lost in the crowd
And some new friends held me up
In the morning
You were far away in the Asian light

Make time stop
Take us back to those days
When our love was forming

January in Miami
We came from the far side of the land
Strolled slowly through the markets
On the beach lay hand in hand

In a few day I arrived
At the golden gate
And it towered there high
Beneath dark clouds
I drove into the mouth of the Oregon range

Make Time Stop
And let a poor man beg
With the tears of a lover’s pain
With the tears of a lover’s ache
With the tears of a lover’s voice
Let a poor man beg
