      About "Skid Row Joe"

      Lyrics for Porter Wagoner - "Skid Row Joe"

      Skid Row Joe last night that's who I found in the dirty part of town
      Lost forgotten with no place to go
      Tormented with a bitter taste outcast by the human race
      A mask of torture was the face of Skid Row Joe
      He walked up to where I stood on the street
      Said pardon me Mister now don't get me wrong I don't want your money
      Though heaven knows I could use it
      But you see this is my home and you see the other bar down the street
      Well that's my home too
      I noticed you starin' at me a while ago you recognized me didn't you
      I said yeah Joe I know who you are
      You was one time a real famous singing star one of my favorites
      He said well I guess you heard they took my babies away from me
      I said yeah Joe I read about it in the papers
      Then he turned his head away and I saw the tears fall in the place
      And he turned to me and he said you know Mister
      This is the only place in the world that I'm not ashamed to show my face
      But I'm gonna quit yes sir I'm gonna quit
      And I'm gonna cut my hair and shave and get me a clean white shirt
      Then I'm gonna walk up to her door
      When she answers I'm gonna stand up real proud and tall
      Then I'm gonna get on my knees
      Then I'll say sweetheart if you'll take me back
      I'll spend the rest of my life makin' up to you for what I've done
      I'm so ashamed of myself and this I want you to know
      Then I'm gonna take my two little babies and I'm gonna hold 'em so close to me
      I ain't gonna never let 'em go
      I guess I should've told him then that she'd already remarried again
      But after hearin' what he'd said to me
      Why there wasn't no way I could add to his misery
      So I said good luck my best to you Skid Row Joe
