Ballad Of Suzy Graham

Ballad of Suzy

Verse One
You pick up your bags and you walk away,
you don't look back, you say your future awaits.
You head for the city, such a dangerous place
for a young girl, who's go no place to stay.

Chorus
Where do think you're going to?
Where will you sleep?
Will you sleep rough on those dirty old streets?
Think again girl, go back home.
Life with your parents girl ain't so bad you know.

Verse Two
Life isn't funny, its just a day to day thing.
Suzy just look, this ain't no place for you!
You don't want to listen, don't care what I say,
but tell me darlin' will you be safe? Cause I'm scared?

Chorus
Where do think you're going to?
Where will you sleep?
Will you sleep rough on those dirty old streets?
Think again girl, go back home.
This ain't no fairytale its better the devil you know.

Verse Three
Well maybe you'll make it, maybe you won't.
This is a dangerous city, you're on your own.
Tramps sleep in boxes, just trying to keep warm.
All of them have stories of lifestyles long gone.

Chorus
Where do think you're going to?
Where will you sleep?
Will you sleep rough on those dirty old streets?
Think again girl, go back home.
Life with your parents girl ain't so bad you know.

Chorus
Where do think you're going to?
Where will you sleep?
Will you sleep rough on those dirty old streets?
Its tough on the street girl and you're on your own.
