Tom Petty - I Forgive It All ~~Poverty and homelessness in America

Take my horse down to the water

Let him graze awhile

Take my horse down to the water

Let him graze awhile



I have not been down these roads since I was a child

I ain't broke and I ain't hungry but I'm close enough to care

I ain't broke and I ain't hungry but I'm close enough to care

Send my things to my niece Laura



She'll keep 'em over there

I forgive it all, I forgive it all

With her, I forgive it all



There ain't no money in this deal, I just tag along

There ain't no money in this deal, I just tag along

Some things I feel right, somebody else thinks wrong



I forgive it all, I forgive it all

With her, I forgive it all



People are what people make em' that ain't gonna change

People are what people make 'em, that ain't gonna change

There ain't nothing you can do, nothing you could rearrange



But I forgive it all, I forgive it all

With her, I forgive it all

A very timely post, Marty. Homelessness is a disgrace in wealthy countries, but the very, very rich are so terrified of losing a few coins ...
