you’re big and you’re bashful
you stumble when you’re weazin
when you were born you smell like wine
that was back in sixty-nine

it’s not that she didn't love you
your mother, she lost her way
when she got down, she got real weak
and no one wants to see

you’re depressed and you’re angry
the world has trouble making room for you
i want to make it better
and i’m so far away

brother from another head space
brother going at a slow pace
brother trying to win the race
in your heartache shoes

you were only three months when
they found you in that dark cabin
with solid food, no breast for you
from the old man who cared for you

you showed up on our porch
in a wicker woven basket
mother opened her heart
and she took you right in

she wonders if she gave enough
but i know she gave it all and more
angel opened her door
and she took you right in

your spirit keeps leading you
winnipeg, toronto, vancouver
main and hastings, scott mission, bus station
stony mountain

they got you on chlorpromazine
to take once a day
some days you don’t take it at all
some days you take ten

you’re depressed and you’re angry
the world has trouble making room for you
i want to make it better
and i’m so far away
