The day my father died
He only had fifty dollars in the bank.
He left us an old Ford car
With a hole in the gas tank
Mama had hope for the future
But her hope chest sank
Like a stone

I was thirteen
And the youngest was three.
Mama had six hungry young
Mouths to feed
We were caught in the iron grip
Of hard-assed paverty
Hard as stone.

My family held their heads high
In the years gone past
Now a kid at school
Called my brother white trash.
My brother told him to go f*ck off
But he kicked my brother's ass
All the way home.

Man always thinks
He's the master of his fate.
He never sees the error of his ways
Until it's too late.
They were drinking champagne on the Titanic
The day it hit ice
And sank like a stone.
