PATTY GRIFFIN lyrics : "Poor Man's House"

You know you've done enough when every bone is sore
You know you've prayed enough when you don't ask any more
You know you're coming to some kind of understanding

When every dream you've dreamed has passed and you're still standing
Mama says god tends to every little skinny sheep
So count your ribs and say your prayers and get to sleep

Nothing is louder to god's ears than a poor mans sorrow
Daddy is poor today and he will be poor tomorrow


Hey that's the poor man's house
Everybody get a look at the poor man's house
Everywhere they went before must have turned them out

And now they're living in a poor man's house

There's nothing like poverty to get you into heaven

They got a lot of wine and fish up there
And the bread's unleavened
They got a lot of ears that heard a whip go crack

Lots of missing toes and fingers and scars upon their backs
Daddy's been working too much for days and days
He doesn't eat

He never says much but I think this time it's got him beat
It isn't that he isn't strong or kind or clever
Your daddy's poor today

And he will be poor forever

Tey that's the poor man's house

Those kids are living in a poor man's house
They walk to school with the soles of their shoes worn out
And come home in the evening to the poor man's house


What are you chopping that wood for
Why are you growing that corn

Mama's sewing a brand new shirt and
You're wearing the one that's torn
I guess it's for some one elses kid who wasn't born

In a poor man's house

Hey take a look at that house

Everybody we're living in a poor man's house
Seems like everywhere we go they find us out
Find out that we've been living in a poor man's house
