They ask black sheep of a black sheep’s son
Have you any wool, and I say no sir
I gave it all away
I’m a black sheep of a black sheep
And I’ve been one many times
But that don’t make me anybody’s fool
I gave most to Christ Jesus for saving my soul
For that bet with the devil who lives down below
There’s been some for my mother, my father
My sister, my brothers, my son, my daughter, my lover
There’s been some for that homeless man
That I watched die in some ally
With a slit wrist I went home to cry
There’s been some for my buddies fightin’
In some rich man’s war
Yeah they gave all they could
We don’t sing no more

I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round
I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round
I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round

They ask black sheep of a black sheep’s son
Where have you been
We’ve been worried, we’ve been in need
I’ve been hidin’ on the pathways
Biding my time amongst the wolves hungry to feed
Well I give what I can nature of man
Just needs war so what can I say
Yeah I’ll die someday stripped
Havin’ given all the gifts I’ve received
That is my pain

I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round
I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round
I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round

Black sheep of a black sheep’s son
Have you any wool, and I say yeah
I saved some for you
