  1. Hey Brother
In cart Not available Out of stock

Composed in 1990. Part of the 820 Sessions. Another one-chord tune. Tom Townsley does adds an excellent melodic harp over this A chord. The lyrics are some of my favorite. It's a sad, sad tune.

Lyrics

Hey brother
have you seen the one I love
Hey brother
have you seen the one I love
When I woke up this morning
everything she owned was gone

Hey brother
can you spare some change
or maybe just a sip of your wine
You got a cigarette
The landlord comes tomorrow
and I’m down on my luck once again

Hey sister
have you got a place in your heart
Tell me sister
have you got a place in your heart - for me
I never knew my father
and my family
has turned their backs on me

I’m cold
and I’m all alone
Yes, I’m cold
and I’m all alone
I guess I’ll catch a ride
to the other side of town
