This girl played a song for us in my History of Popular Music class, and for the life of me I can't remember the name or lines from the song.
Here's the rundown of it:
There is this old lady who has no one who cares about her, except one little boy. And the little boy brings her food [it said stew in the song... some kind of stew XD]. He leaves to the city for some reason, and many years later, the old woman is wandering through the streets [with a cart, maybe?]. She sees the boy, who is now a grown man, and who is a police officer. He treats her very poorly even after learning who she is.
It's pretty much a song about how society/police force corrupts you. It's a ballad, and it's amazing.
Anyone know it?
