PAGE 5: A KID ON THE STREET featuring Doug Seegers

This is the fifth page in our concept “Authentic Stories” where we collect actual events from somebodys life and make music off of it.

This one was conceived while traveling USA, Nashville where a lonely, homeless boy was seen roaming the streets of the great city. We write, compose and produce all these stories out of our studio at “Tailor Hill” in the small town of Borlänge in the middle of Sweden. For this one we’ve reached out to Nashvilles own Doug Seegers to sing!

A Kid On The Street

Verse 1:
Looking away, is just an illusion 
Turning my head, the other way
Walking by, trying to deny it
And moving on, I’m closing my eyes

PreChorus:
And the kid on the street, a kid with no future

Roaming around, the streets of the town
Looking for food, looking for shelter
Full of despair, longing for love

Chorus:
These are the backstreets of the promised land 
The home of the brave, the people I meet 
The world is spinning around, in its orbit
Never talking ‘bout, the homeless kid on the street

Verse 2:
Sitting in a the Greyhound home to Nashville 
The burning sunset over the hills
You’ve gotta believe it’s a beautiful country
I only wish I could share it with this kid

PreChorus (short):
And the kid on the street, a kid with no future
Full of despair, longing for love

Chorus:
These are the backstreets of the promised land 
The home of the brave, the people I meet The world is spinning around, in its orbitNever talking ‘bout, the homeless kid on the street

Bridge (instrumental):

Guitars and backing vocals

Chorus:
These are the backstreets of the promised land 
The home of the brave, the people I meet 
The world is spinning around, in its orbit
Never talking ‘bout, the homeless kid on the street
Never talking ‘bout, the homeless kid on the street
