The Ballad of Hollis Brown

Hollis Brown he lived
On the outside of town
Hollis Brown he lived
On the outside of town
With his wife and five children
In his cabin broken down
 
He looked for work and money,
And he walked a ragged mile.
He looked for work and money,
And he walked a ragged mile.
Your children are so hungry
That they don't know how to smile
 
Your baby's eyes look crazy
And they're tuggin' at your sleeve
Your baby's eyes look crazy
And they're tuggin' at your sleeve
You walk the floor and you wonder why
With every breath you breathe
 
The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
Is there anyone that knows
Is there anyone that cares
 
You prayed to the Lord above
To please send you a friend
You prayed to the Lord above
To please send you a friend
Your empty pockets tell you
That you ain't got no friend
 
Your baby's a cryin' louder now
It's poundin' on your brain
Your baby's a cryin' louder now
It's poundin' on your brain
Your wife's screams are a stabbin' you
Like dirty, drivin' rain
 
Your grass is turnin' black
And there's no water in your well
Your grass is turnin' black
And there's no water in your well
You spent your last lone dollar
On them seven shotgun shells
 
Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That's hangin' on the wall
 
Your brain it is a bleedin'
And your legs can't seem to stand
Your brain it is a bleedin'
And your legs can't seem to stand
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That you're holdin' in your hand
 
There's seven breezes blowin'
Around the cabin door
There's seven breezes blowin'
All around the cabin door
Seven shots ring out
Like the oceans pounding roar
 
There's seven people dead
On a South Dakota farm
There's seven people dead
On a South Dakota farm
Somewhere in the distance
There's seven new people born.
