How Can A Poor Boy?

Album: Keep It Simple (2008)
  • This song addresses the media, who had given the reclusive Morrison some poor press. Morrison told BBC Radio 4's Today about this track: "Nobody knows me. None of these people know me. They don't know where I came from, they don't know where I've been, they don't know what it took and they don't know how hard it was. They don't know me, so that's what the song is addressing. How can a poor boy get a message through to you."
