Blanket Roll Blues By Kenyon Hopkins





Blanket by google.com



I took what I was given
and I took what I have stole,
but I took nobody with me,
not a soul, not a soul.
.
I took nobody with me,
not a soul.
.
I took some things for hunger,
and I took some things for cold,
but I took nobody with me,
not a soul, not a soul.
I took nobody with me,
not a soul.
.
I took all my anticipations with me,
all the dreams that I could hold,
but I took nobody with me,
Not a soul, not a soul.
.
I took nobody with me,
not a soul.
.
I took my heart and body,
in a dirty blanket roll,
but I took nobody with me,
not a soul, not a soul.
.
I took nobody with me,
not a soul.
