(verse) I was chilly as I walked to the door where I work From the warmth of my car in the lot where he stopped me and said, Brother, can you help me out? Well he seemed nice enough, but I was just a little gruff It was thirteen degrees and I didnt have the time so I Lied, I havent got a dime. (chorus) Ill be damned in eternal perpetuity, for my wishy-washy moral ambiguity Do I have a buck to give? Does he need a buck to live? Or is he the type of spender, wholl just burn it on a bender? Sometimes you just guess and do your best. (verse) He could see my leather jacket and my SUV I wasnt fooling anybody who could see He said, Youre not as broke as me. I said, Sorry, not today and I turned to walk away Then I did the only thing my guilty soul could do I looked back and said, good luck to you. (chorus) (bridge) Well it never made the papers, but Ive wondered ever since When that icy night gave up its darkness, did they find his frozen carcass Where the rail yard meets the fence? (chorus)

This is a true story. After I told the guy I wasn't going to give him anything and wished him luck, he said, "Alright, but you've got to sing a song about me." I said, "I will. I'll have to write one." This is it.
