Box #10 Lyrics

Well out of Southern Illinois come a down home country boy
He gonna make it in the city playin’ guitar in the studio
Well he hadn’t been there an hour, when he met a Broadway flower
You know she took him for his money and she left him in a cheap hotel
Well it’s easy for you to see that that country boy is me
Thinking how am I ever gonna tell the news to the folks back home

Chorus:
Hello Mamma and Dad I had to call collect
‘Cause I ain’t got a cent to my name
And I’m sleepin’ in the hotel doorway
And if you’d only send me some money
I’ll be back on my feet again
Send it in care of the Sunday Mission
Box number ten

Well back in Southern Illinois they’re still worryin’ ’bout their boy
But this boy’s goin’ home soon as he gets the fare
Well as soon as I got my bread
I got a fucking pipe upside my head
You know they left me in an alley
Took my money and my guitar, too

Chorus:
Hello Mamma and Dad I had to call collect
‘Cause I ain’t got a cent to my name
And I’m sleepin’ in the hotel doorway
And if you’d only send me some money
I’ll be back on my feet again
Send it in care of the Sunday Mission
Box number ten

Send it in care of the Sunday Mission
Box number ten
