lyrics

I was born Simon Bigelow
They call me Simon Pure
When I reached 14 I looked hard and mean
Stopped calling the rich man "Sir"
I was sent away where people say that
"Every sad song has a reason."
But they kicked me out when they found out
And put me on trial for treason

Now they call me Simon Pure
But the rich folks they ain't sure
But when I walk on down from Hillytown
May your conscience rest assured

I was born in a land that let me know
My daddy burned the midnight oil
And my mama did her best with that ol' mess
To blind me from tears and toil
No escape from the blame that knows your name
You can't run from the sun too long
And by the time I pulled into Winslow
The rain had already begun

Now they call me Simon Pure
But the rich folks they ain't sure
But when I walk on down from Hillytown
May your conscience rest assured

I was born Simon Bigelow
They call me Simon Pure
I became a man with a guitar hand
When it made my mind secure

If you ask me where I got my name
And I'll try to estimate
Music is the only thing pure enough
To make me side with fate
