Sam Stone / サム・ストーン氏の場合には

アーティストAl Kooper
作詞John Prine
作曲John Prine
Sam stone came home to his wife and
Family after serving in the conflict overseas
In the time that he had served it had
Shattered all his never and left a
Little shrapnel in his knee
But the morphine eased the pain and
The grass grew'round his brain and
Gave him all the confidence he lacked
With a purple heart and a monkey on his back

Chorus
There's a hole in daddy's arm
where all the money goes
Jesus Christ died for nothing, I suppose
Little pictures have big ears
but don't stop to count the years
Sweet songs never last
Too long on broken radios

Sam stone's welcome home did not last too long
He went to work after he spent his
Last dime and then sammy took to
Stealin' when he'd get that empty
Feeling for a hundred-dollar habit

Without overtime
And the gold rolled through his veins
Like a thousand railroad trains and
It eased his mind in the hours that he
Chose while his kids ran around wearing
Other people's clothes.

Chorus
There's a hole in daddy's arm
where all the money goes
Jesus Christ died for nothing, I suppose
Little pictures have big ears
but don't stop to count the years
Sweet songs never last
Too long on broken radios

Sam stone was alone
when he broke his last balloon
Climbing walls while he sat there in a chair
And he played his last request
while the room stunk just like death
with an overdose hovering in the air
But life had lost all its fun
and now there's nothing
That can be done but
To trabe in his home that he bought on
The gi bill for a black-draped casket
On some local hero's hill
