If you see your man in clothes that's old and ragged
And he walks from bar to bar in worn out shoes
If people point and whisper God have mercy
Would you deny the man that you once knew.

Would you be ashamed to remember
I'm the same man that lost everything for you
If tomorrow on the street I die a beggar
Would you deny the man that you once knew.

--- Instrumental ---

If on the street I meet you with your new love
And I walk right up and say how do you do
Would you turn your back and tell him you don't know me
Would you deny the man that you once knew.

Would you be ashamed to remember
I'm the same man that lost everything for you
If tomorrow on the street I die a beggar
Would you deny the man that you once knew.

Would you deny the man that you once knew...
