Shopping Bag Lady

This song is by The Guess Who and appears on the album Power in the Music (1975).

City lights and the pretty sights beckoned you to roam
Leavin' now and you're knowin' how, you're on your own
Family and reality seem so far away
Feelin' fine and the happy times have left you to stay

Oh shopping bag lady, asleep on the snow
If you had your fortune, you'd trade it for a kind hello
Oh shopping bag lady the winter winds blow
Society has forgotten you, there's nowhere left for you to go

Through the tears, all your better years passin' by so fast
Loneliness is a part of you, and oh how it lasts
No one there, there to really care, the city seems so cold
Yesterday you were just a child, today you're so old

I would love to hold you
Nights when you're alone and the cold and dark is killin' you ever so slowly
I would love to love you
Nights when you're alone, you're alone

I know the days used to be something different for you
I know it's cold and lonely and it's misery
I wanna help you, I wanna help you, I wanna help you when you're down
I wanna look around and find a helping hand for you
Oh no it's never too late, oh no it's never too late to try and help you out
I know you're cold and it's misery
I can tell the days used to be something different for you
