Little Tom Lyrics - Ferlin Husky



Review The Song (1)


Little Tom what will be your fate Little Tom will you be someone great
Do you know right from wrong are they teaching you at home
Or have they turn you loose to roam Little Tom
I walked into a cafe and ordered myself something to eat
When a little boy walked in with his shoes half off his feet
He said (buy a paper Mister) I said how do you son
(Seven sir when my papers are sold I'll be on my way home)
What's your name (Thomas but everybody calls me Little Tom
They named me after my daddy but they say I look like my mom)
I said why it's almost midnight son you should be home asleep
(I know it but I wanna get me a bicycle and I gotta help mama buy somethin' to eat
My daddy's pretty mean to us and he spends most of his money for wine
He don't hold a job like other men cause, well,he gets hired all the time)
I said have somethin' to eat aren't you hungry
He said (I guess a little bit
I believe I have a hamburger and a glass of milk to go with it)
I said Is that enough, He said (make it too cause I ain't eat since noon)
Where you live son (on Main Street sir there's six of us livin' in one room
There's me and my three brothers and my mommy and my dad
But someday I'm gonna buy me a big house even if I have to turn out bad)
My appetite left me as I sat there watching him
And I thought he's just one of thousands that's brought up in a home of sin
Where the parents neglect their children and forget to maker the all mankind
Then wondered why there's juvenile deliquency when their at fault most of the time
I bit my lip and fought back tears as I watched the little guy leave the cafe
And I wondered how many more children would be brought up this way
Little Tom what will be your fate

Little Tom by Ferlin Husky | Reviewer: Debbie | 11/20/2006

I would love to have this song, my husbands name is Tom and he lived on Main St. in East Toledo. I have heard the song many years ago my mother-in-law had it on 33 record, I have been searching for this song since she passed away over 5 years ago. I would at least like to hear it again if possible. Thank you very much. Please let me know where I can purchase this song if at all possible. Sincerely, Debbie
