Soul Thursday-The Spinners – Ghetto Child

Beautiful song. Art at its finest. Everything from the instrument arrangements, singing, to the wonderful lyrics.

“When I was seventeen, I ran away from home.
And from everything, I had ever known
I was sick and tired living in a town
Filled with narrow minds and hate

They used to laugh at me and children called me names
I would run and hide feeling so ashamed
Just for being born, I was just a boy
Punished for a crime that was not mine”
