Lyrics of Jacob Brown





Jacob Brown found me when I was a baby

Abandoned on some lonesome city street

He took me in and tried his best to raise me

To pick me up and put me on my feet

He taught me how to dance and play the banjo

I passed the hat while that old man would sing

We played every two-bit town from Maine to Texas

I can tell a half a-dollar from a quarter from the way she rings



Chorus:

And I recall a boxcar and a bedroom

Have supper cookin' by railroad tracks

But that was home to us, it made no difference

That I was white and Jacob Brown was black



We were somewhere close to Kansas City, Kansas



Tradin' songs for drinks in some saloon

I picked a piece while Jacob did the softshoe

You could've heard a pin drop in the room

Than I tipped my hat and started for the money

And just as quick I turned and he was down

He said, “Son, I guess I'm bound to leave you nothin'.”

But nothin' was a lot to Jacob Brown



So, I'm goin' on the Oklahoma City

Tryin' to put tomorrow on my mind

But I just can't seem to get it all together

‘Cause I find it kinda hard to leave an old friend behind



(Chorus)





Jacob Brown fand mich, wenn ich ein Baby war
Abandoned auf einigen einsamen Stadtstraße
Er nahm mich auf und versuchte sein Bestes, um mich zu erheben
Um mich abzuholen und mich auf meine Füße
Er lehrte mich, wie man tanzt und spielt auf dem Banjo
Ich ging den Hut, während der alte Mann würde singen
Wir spielten alle zwei-Bit-Stadt von Maine bis Texas
Ich kann einen halben Dollar von einem Viertel erzählen von der Art, wie sie Ringe
