Tramp On The Street

This song is by Joan Baez and appears on the album Joan Baez/5 (1964).

This song is a cover of "The Tramp on the Street" by Grady And Hazel Cole.
Only a tramp was Lazarus that day
He lay down by the rich man's gate
He begged for food from the rich man to eat
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street

He was somebody's darlin', he was some mother's son
Once he was fair, once he was young
Some mother she rocked him, her little darlin' to sleep
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street

Jesus who died on Calvary's tree
Gave his life blood for you and for me
They pierced his side, his hands and his feet
And they left Him to die like a tramp on the street

He was Mary's own darlin', God's chosen one
Once he was fair, once he was young
Mary she rocked him, her little darlin' to sleep
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street

When the battles are over, and the victory's won
Everyone mourns for the poor man's son
Red, white and blue, and victory sweet
And they left him to die like a tramp on the street

He was somebody's darlin', some mother's son
Once he was fair, once he was young
Some mother she rocked him, her little darlin' to sleep
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street
