Harry Chapin – There Only Was One Choice

There’s a kid out on my corner — hear him strumming like a fool Shivering in his dungarees — but still he’s going to school His cheeks are made of peach fuzz — his hopes may be the same But he’s signed up as a soldier out to play the music game There are fake patches on his jacket — he’s used bleach to fade his jeans With a brand new stay pressed shirt — and some creased and wrinkled dreams His face a blemish garden — but his eyes are virgin clear His voice is Chicken Little’s — But he’s hearing Paul Revere When he catches himself giggling — he forces up a sneer Though he’d rather have a milk shake — he keeps forcing down the beer Just another folkie — late in coming down the pike Riding his guitar — he left Kid brother with his bike And he’s got Guthrie running in his bones He’s the hobo kid who’s left his home And his Beatles records and the Rolling Stones This boy is staying acoustic. 1,225 more words
