Her boy came home three hours late
They shot him down at her front gate
Her only thought his dinner's cold
Fourteen years and fear untold
Now it comes to this in her own home

Go wash your hands my little one
Your sisters here to help your momma
Talk to the policeman
And you'll hear her say

Tell me my boy will see tomorrow
Tell me why he had to die
Tell me that we'll be safe tomorrow
Tell me

They say the man next door
He watched it all
A car drove by
He saw him fall
Come take my hand my only son
We want no part and
What I know won't help
Your friend is gone
Yet you'll hear him say

(Guitar Solo)

You know the man in blue has questions too
Like how do I sleep when this is through

He'll find their man
His fear is gone
He feels their pain
He's seen it all
Yet you'll hear him say
