RANDY TRAVIS: "See Myself In You"

If I met you, on the corner,
Would I know you, as you are?
Would I take you, for a stranger,
And brush past you in the door?
If you call me, would I hear you,
Or would I walk away too soon?
If I lingered for a moment,
Would I see myself in you?

If I fought you, as a soldier,
If I had you in my sights,
Would you ask me to remember,
Who imagined, I was right?
If you witnessed my surrender,
Do I know what I would lose? *
If You held me, like my brother,
Would I see myself in you?

Well, I dreamed my end was near,
I was almost gone.
If I dream that dream from here,
Can I still come home?

--- Instrumental ---

If you call me, would I hear you,
Do I know, what would I do?
If you held me like my father,
Would I see myself in you?

If you held me like my mother,
Would I see myself in you?...

* all the lyrics say "do" here...but I wonder if he isn't saying "lose". I don't have the liner notes.

NANCI GRIFFITH
Down 'N' Outer

(Nanci Griffith)

I once was a lot like you
We share a dream I couldn't make come true
I was a child who wrote my name
Across a frosted window pane

And there are jobs that I might hold
If they'd just let me through the door
Without a shower and new clothes
That I can ill afford

[Chorus:]
Can you spare the time?
Can you spare a dime?
Can you look me in the eye?
I'm down 'n' out
And I am lonely
Do you ever think of me on
Sunday?
No. I don't live
Across the water
Hey, I live right here
On this corner
...just a bank account away from
America

I won't hurt your family
I don't want a house there on your street
And I know you think that I'm...
As lazy as a hobo's sigh
Now, you call me down 'n' outer
If there's a way out...
I've not found 'er
I only want to earn my piece of America

[Chorus]

I'm just a bank account away from
America
