Lyrics

Now mommy and daddy, they live down the street They will go out drinking, when they put me to sleep I set there and cry because we've never been fed, I could break out a window, i'd rather be dead Cold winds a blowing, Oh the wind it howls My mother and dad, they're lost in the crowd They will even spend money on whiskey instead I'd break out a window for one loaf of bread A place is prepared in Heaven on high, Where little children of God have no need to cry Oh when I am gone Lord, let it be said I thank you dear Lord for this one loaf of bread Three little graves just outside of town, Where a family in prayer all gathered around To gaze at a stone, these words they have read They break no more windows, they steal no more bread, I beggied an I cried for the other kids sake Not a penny or nickel or a dime could I make. A little light shone bright off a stone up ahead, I broke out a window for one loaf of bread.
