In an Appalachian, Greyhound station She sits there waiting, in a family way "Goodbye brother, Tell Mom I love her Tell all the others, I'll write someday" From an teenage lover, to an unwed mother Kept undercover, like some bad dream While unwed fathers, they can't be bothered They run like water, through a mountain stream In a cold and gray town, a nurse say's "Lay down" 'This ain't no playground, and this ain't home' Someone's children, out having children In a gray stone building, all alone On somewhere else bound, Smokey Mountain Greyhound She bows her head down, hummin' lullabies 'Your daddy never, meant to hurt you ever' 'He just don't live here, but you've got his eyes' From an teenage lover, to an unwed mother Kept undercover, like some bad dream While unwed fathers, they can't be bothered They run like water, through a mountain stream Well, they run like water Through a mountain stream

People who are sad, sometimes they wear a frown And people who are kings, sometimes they wear a crown But all the people who don't fit They get the only fun they get From people puttin' people down People puttin' people down People without love, sometimes build a fence around The garden up above, that makes the whole world go 'round But all the people who don't fit They get the only fun they get From people puttin' people down People puttin' people down So cold, sometimes it gets so cold You may love your wife, you may lose your family And you may lose your mind, just to keep your sanity But the people who don't fit They get the only fun they get From people puttin' people down People puttin' people down People that are glad, sometimes they wear a smile And people without dreams, they walk the extra mile But all the people who don't fit They get the only fun they get From people puttin' people down People puttin' people down People puttin' people down People puttin' people down So cold, sometimes it gets so cold
