Every mother’s son

I speak to you, I think you understand you know
You made your son Joseph a dangerous man you know
He’s gone into town and bought himself a gun
This could happen to every mother’s son

I spoke to Joseph, his time has come
Vengeance is mine he said, come join the fun
He looked more like a Judas on the run
This could happen to every mother’s son

Since I spoke to Joseph, he’s gone into town
He killed six strong men ‘fore they shot him down
I hate to think it’s only just begun
This could happen to every mother’s son

Somethin’ to tell you I think you should know
You think too fast and you love too slow you know
You needn’t feel you’re the only one
This could happen to every mother’s son

Chris Smither, 1971
