ON SUSAN'S FLOOR (Shel Silverstein / Vincent Matthews) Gordon Lightfoot - 1972 Hank Williams Jr. - 1975 Like crippled ships that made it Through the storms and finally reached a quiet shore The homeless found a home on Susan's floor I didn't feel so cold and tired Stretched out before her fire Rollin' smokes and drinkin' up her wine And I remember candle light and singing Till we could not sing no more And fallin' warm asleep on Susan's floor Well, now that my song is sweeter I think I'd like to greet her And thank her for the favours that she gave A stranger I came My head bowed in the rain, to her door I sat and sang my songs on Susan's floor In the mornin' I'd go on Buying kingdoms with my songs Knowin' I'd be back in just a while Warmin' in the sunlight of her smile (Instrumental Break) Well, lots of time and songs have passed I catch myself lookin' back Reliving all the wonder of those nights That's where I'd be today If I had only stayed one night more And sang another song on Susan's floor Like crippled ships that made it Through the storms and finally reached a quiet shore The homeless found a home on Susan's floor (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2013)
