Yocona Lyrics - Tommy Bryan Ledford



So have mercy on a poor boy, a poor boy like me.
Lone without companions and I have no family.
My heart is worn out corduroy that bears a crimson stain.
God made me a poor boy and so I shall remain.

Woke up to the sound of thunder rattlin' the pane.
Yocona's over-flowing and there's more rain on the way.
Here there's coffee in the pot and fried eggs in the pan.
Well the poor boy looks for consolation any way he can.
So have mercy on a poor boy, a poor boy like me.
Lone without companions and I have no family.
My heart is worn out corduroy that bears a crimson stain.
God made me a poor boy and so I shall remain.

Broke another's hard to follow remember where it might lead.
Found myself alone without the comfort that I need.
Wasn't always honest and I was not hardly true.
Still I traded blood and a mother's love to sing this song for you.

So have mercy on a poor boy, a poor boy like me.
Lone without companions and I have no family.
My heart is worn out corduroy that bears a crimson stain.
God made me a poor boy and so I shall remain.
Oh God made me a poor boy and so I shall remain.
