Thanksgiving


by Mary Gauthier. Buy album CD: Between Daylight And Dark


We stood in a long line waiting for the doors to be unlocked
Out in the cold wind, Ďround the razor wire fenced in cellblock
Young mamaís with babies, sisters and other kinds of kin
At Tallulah State Prison on Thanksgiving Day, weíre waiting to get in

You gotta get here early, it donít matter how many miles you drove
They make you wait for hours, jailers always move slow
They run names, check numbers, gravel faced guards they donít smile
Grammy and me in line, silently waiting single file

Thanksgiving at the prison, surrounded by families
Road weary pilgrims who show up faithfully
Sometimes love ainít easy, sometimes love ainít free

My grammy looks so old now, her hair is soft and white like the snow
Her hands tremble when they frisk her from head to her toes
They make her take her winter coat off then they frisk her again
When theyíre done she wipes their touch off her dress, stands tall and heads in

Thanksgiving at the prison, surrounded by families
Road weary pilgrims who show up faithfully
Even though it ainít easy, even though it ainít free
Sometimes love ainít easy, I guess love ainít free
