OLD TO FULFILL A DREAM I'VE HAD IN MY HEART FOR MANY,MANY YEARS WHICH WAS TO RECORD SOME OF THE MANY SONG I'VE WRITTEN OVER THE YEARS.I WAS UNDECIDED AFTER 21/2 YRS. WHETHER TO MOVE OUT OF THE ED KEATING CENTER OR TO GO FOR MY DREAM AND AFTER PRAYING ONE NIGHT I FELT IN MY HEART THE GOOD LORD TELLING ME TO GO FOR MY DREAM AND HE WOULD PUT SOMEONE IN MY LIFE WHO BELEIVED IN MY MUSIC.I DON'T KNOW WHO THAT IS SO I KEEP MAILING OUT MY CD TO PRODUCERS AND RECORD LABELS FOR SOME ADVICE AND DIRECTION SINCE I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE MUSIC BUSINESS.

Written By: tommy botz

holes in both my pockets
a dollar tucked in my shoe
my clothes dirty and wrinkled
from sleepin in that ol train caboose

i passed me a bar on the corner
the sghn read 10 cent beer
i slipped off my sho and got my dollar
thought i'd spend a liitle time in here

maggie i'm sorry tell the kids goodbye
you know i gave it one hell of a try
maggie i'm sorry tho you don't understand
you see a drunk will sell his soul for a bottle if he can

the people were warm and friendly
and 90 cents was my change
i leaned back to take a swallow
then her memory appeared again

what do i do with this memory
that haunts me everyday
lord forgive me,i couldn't see
what the drink was taking away

chorus again

i stepped back out on the corner
with nothin left in my shoe
i headed back to the railroad track
to my home that ol train caboose

and as i sat alone that night
drinkin up my change
a tear in my eye oh i started to cry
as her memory appeared again

chorus again
