lyrics

And there was boy, he was troubled
Jonah was his name
When I found him he was crying
Underneath the rain

I said son why are your crying?
Don't you know the war has been won
I gave some of my clothing
Told him now, he could run

He said I lost my family
I don't know where they've gone
And I miss my mama
Don't know if she's passed on

And I'm so tired
Of living out of pocket
And I'm so tired
Of living at all

And I said there are many false people
Who'll stop you along the road
And grief itself is a shadow
Which under sunlight remains cold

But stay with me a while
I've known worse and I've known better
Maybe some day down the line
You'll forget to remember

And there was a boy, he was troubled
Jonah was his name
And after a few months
I never saw him again
