A STRANGER WORKING HARD

A STRANGER WORKING HARD
A MAN HELPED ME OUT 
WHEN I WAS IN DOUBT
SCARED TO DEATH
I FELT THE CAR WRECK
AT MY FEET
YET HE WAS AT MY WINDOW
ASKING ME IF I NEEDED A RIDE

I GOT OUT OF THE VAN
MY HEART STOPPED BUT NOT FAR
HE PUT MY GROCERIES IN HIS TRUCK
I STILL FELT STUCK
YET HE SAID HELP YOU OUT
HE TALKED TO MY INSURANCE COMPANY
FOLLOWED ME TO A MECHANIC
AND THEN DROVE ME HOME

HE DIDN’T STOP THERE HE CALLED HIS WIFE
HE SAID I KNOW SOMEBODY 
BECAUSE THE PLACE I TOOK IT TO DIDN’T DO THAT WORK
AND GIVE ME YOUR NUMBER TO FIX MY VAN

HE CAME THE NEXT DAY AND HELPED ME UP INTO HIS TRUCK
WE WENT AND LOOKED
HE SAID GIVE ME 7 TO 10 DAYS
BUT HE COULDN’T BE RUSHED
HE HAD OTHERS TO DO BESIDES
HE HAD MY VAN TOWED

 HE THAN TOLD ME WE ARE ON A ROLL
EACH DAY WENT BY I WORRIED
HE GOT ME A RENT - A-CAR IN A HURRY
HE ASKED TO CALL HIM LATER
AS HE WENT ONE STEP FUTHER
HE CALLED ME A FEW DAYS LATER AND
 SAID ALL THE PARTS WEREN’T IN
BUT TOLD ME TO RENT A CAR AGAIN
HE SAID HE WOULD TAKE CARE OF IT
WHILE HE WAS FIXING ALL OF IT

HE SAID HE WAS NOT GOING TO MAKE IT IN 10
BUT HE DECIDED TO GO GET THE PARTS HIMSELF
LATER  THE NEXT DAY HE CALLED AND SAID
I’M BRINGING THE VAN TO YOU THIS AFTERNOON
HE TOLD ME SINCE HE WAS LATE TO NOT PAY HIM IN FULL
BUT I FELT HE DESERVED MORE 
A STRANGER WORKING HARD
PUT OUT ALL HIS CARDS
JUST TO GET IT DONE, NOW EVERYONE ASKING WHERE I HAD IT DONE
I HAVE HIS CARD TO HELP HIM CARRY ON
THANKING HIM ONCE AGAIN
