Matthew Good Band – Poor Man's Gray lyrics

From Chicago to Miami
Shout New York, shout la
Today we take the White House
And paint it poor man's gray
From London to Damascus
Cry Freetown in Marseilles
Today we take the blue sky
And paint it poor man's gray
My mama she done told me
There's heart and then there's hate
If one of them is inside of you
The other one it ain't
From the alleys on the East side
Where the train it throws the weight
Brother take that cheeky smile
And paint it poor man's gray
From Berlin to Havana
From Beijing to Bombay
Today we take the blue sky
And paint it poor man's gray
