Glorianna [Streetwalkers version]
- 34 Views
Glorianna lives on Lowell street In alleys, bus stops and doorways Well, she came out West, looking for a new life And instead she found the needle & the glass pipe She gets most of her meals from a Baptist Church And sleeps under a bridge out by the race track Well, she talks tough and thinks softly "Make me pure like a pearl" Glorianna When the money's gone Fight for your life When the dam it breaks Fight for your life When the street is cold Fight for your life And when you grow old Fight for your life I met Glorianna when she was nineteen In a Market Street bar on a Sunday She'd been dancing in the streets for three years And dancing in the sheets all of her life She wanted to go North just to get clean Where she'd praise God and count the rosary But first she needed twenty bills for one last shot Said, "Can I make you feel like a man?" Glorianna When the sun never rises in your dreams And Kansas looks like somewhere in a magazine Christmas Eve, 1993 On a Greyhound bus bound for Cold Spring She gonna get it straight, find some gravity She gonna get away from the night and its vanity Glorianna did you make it home To a big white house where you're never alone? And does the daylight shine down on your head Or do you walk the night for your butter and bread? Glorianna
