Sam Stone
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sam Stone came home to his wife and family after
serving in the conflict overseas, and the time that
he'd served had shattered all his nerves and left a
little shrapnel in his knees, but the morphine eased
the pain and the grass grew round his brain and gave
all the confidence he lacked, with a purple heart and a monkey on his back, there's a hole in daddy's arm where
all the money goes, and Jesus Christ died for nothin I
suppose, little pctures have big ears, don't stop to count
the years, sweet songs never last too long on broken radio's.

Sam Stones welcome home didn't last too long, he went
to work when he spent his last dime, and Sammy took
ta steal'in when he got that empty feel'in, for a hundred
dollar habbit without overtime, and the gold rode through
his vains, like a thousand railroad trains and eased his
mind in the hours that he chose, while the kids ran around
wear'in other peoples clothes.

There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes
and Jesus Christ died for nothin I suppose, little pitures
have big ears, don't stop to count the years, sweet songs
never last too long on broken radio's.

Sam Stone was alone when he popped his last baloon,
climbing walls while sitting in a chair, well he played
his last request while the room just smelled like death,
with an overdose hover'in in the air, well life had lost
it's fun and there was nothin to be done but trade his
house that he bought on the G.I. Bill, for a flaged
draped casket on a local Heroe's Hill.

There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes,
and Jesus Christ died for nothin I suppose, little pitures
have big ears, don't stop to count the years, sweet songs
never last too long on broken radio's!
