Homeless In The Street...Merle Haggard

This morning while laid back listening to some of the songs I have on several flash drives
and kind of in that dream state one gets in..at such times,
this old Merle haggard tune came on.
It took me back as such songs tend to do and I remembered a time in L.A.
and a family recently put out of their home and staying on the street,
three kids ..a dog and a car for shelter.
Good news was that they were not addicts or drunks like some of us and after a few days the father got employed and soon they were off the streets once more.
I can still remember the warmth they showed us and the love they had for each other.
Peace

My Home Is In The Street"

No sir, I'm not homeless, my home is in the street
I'm not some lonely person down there begging round your feet
Somehow we stay warm and cozy huddled in the wind
No sir, I'm not homeless, we just need a house to put it in

You see daddy lost his good job last November
And we were way behind on rent by then
Mom and dad said, "Baby, always hold your head up high
Yeah, and always keep your backside to the wind"

No sir, I'm not homeless, my home is in the street
I'm not some lonely person down there begging round your feet
Somehow we stay warm and cozy huddled in the wind
No sir, I'm not homeless, we just need a house to put it in

At first they looked just like another family down on their luck
Searching for shelter in a storm
But it was then I noticed something different
I think more in attitude than in appearance
And though it was rather cold that morning
As I stepped closer to their circle it seemed to radiate warmth
And in this little girls eyes were a light
And as I asked her about being homeless
She proudly raised her head and said it right

No sir, I'm not homeless, my home is in the street
We're not some lonely people down here begging round your feet
Somehow we stay warm and cozy huddled in the wind
No sir, I'm not homeless, we just need a house to put it in
