Once upon a time, I thought I had it rough
Lyin' down in the moonlight, sleeping in my car sure is tough
After about six months of that
I know I'd had enough
So I rolled me up a fatty and I took me a puff
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'

'Bout that 16 year old junkie with a trick up his sleeve
Mama cries day and night, Lord, begs him to leave
Well all this information leads me to believe
Some folks maybe got it a little bit, worse than me
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'

Little girl lost her innocence
Gave birth at 17
She ain't ready for life and dad ain't nowhere to be seen
Shows up at age 12 boy, ask daddy where he's been
"Well I been playing the ponies, sorry your mama's a fiend"
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'

Soldier disenchanted, comin' home from the war
He got half a leg and shell shock, his wounds still sore
He goes down town for the cattle call, in line to get a job
"You better get a shave now and cut your hair boy, you look like a slob"
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'

Listening to the radio, roach still hanging from my lip
I got my own agenda, no longer riding the whip
Well I was so selfish, but now I can see
That some folks maybe got it a little bit worse than me
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
Started thinkin, yeah, I've been thinkin'
