Robert Cray - Night Patrol Lyrics

  • Night Patrol
  • by Robert Cray
  • See him huddled in the shadows, sleepin' on his cardboard bed.
  • Usin' rags for a pillow, where he lays his unwashed head.
  • His blankets old newspapers, they're not much good against the snow.
  • You see so many out there like him, when you walk the night patrol,
  • When you walk the night patrol.
  • Oh, you wonder where he came from, where he's gonna go.
  • Was it a woman or a bottle that brought him down so low?
  • What's happened to his family? Do they know he's out here in the cold?
  • He's just a nameless soldier, Marchin' on the night patrol,
  • Marchin' on the night patrol.
  • Like that girl there on the corner, she can't be more than seventeen.
  • She's run away from somewhere, takin' nothin' but her dreams
  • Now those dreams are lying shattered, as the street exacts its toll,
  • And she's just another victim, lost out on the night patrol.
  • Oh, you can ask me why I'm out here, where do I fit into the scene.
  • Now I'm drawing unemployment got replaced by a machine.
  • And I'm tortured by my bad habits, sometimes I lose the struggle to control.
  • And the street has its attractions, when you walk the night patrol,
  • When you walk the night patrol.
