Poor girl, no Ma 
Nothing much to speak of but a rough diamond 
Sleep now and your angels will come, dear 
Poor Matilda 
Handcuffed to the wheel 
And steering wildly 
Through love's fields, so blindly 

Forever only takes its toll on some 
But, tonight you're sleeping alone without him 
Tonight you're sleeping alone without him 
And everything went up in smoke like wildflowers 
Wildflowers, dear 

Poor girl, lonely 
Shuffles through the parade 
Of a sleepless circus serenade 
Hold on, dear 

Poor girl, no Ma 
Sister steals her a coat 
For the windless breezes 
Sleep now and Jesus will come, dear 

Forever only takes it's toll on some 
But, tonight you're sleeping alone without him 
Tonight you're sleeping alone without him 
And everything went up in smoke like wild flowers 
Wildflowers, dear
