Barclay James Harvest

Poor Boy Blues

Play

It's Easy to See a Poor Boy's Blues
When He's Working Every Day
It's Harder to Be There in His Shoes
He Was Born to Be That Way
If I Tell You Tomorrow I'm Leaving
Would You Understand the Reason Why?
A Poor Boy Works Hard For His Living
But a Rich Man He Plays to Pass the Time

So Goodbye, Pleased to Know You
We Had Some Laughs Along the Way
But I Have to Be Leaving
And There's Nothing You Can Do to Make Me Stay

If I Tell You Tomorrow I'm Leaving
Would You Understand the Reason Why?
A Poor Boy Works Hard For His Living
But a Rich Man He Plays to Pass the Time

So Goodbye, Pleased to Know You
We Had Some Laughs Along the Way
But I Have to Be Leaving
And There's Nothing You Can Do to Make Me Stay
