I rode the late train into town just the other day
To see what went on, in the city
The country land's getting sadder and sadder every day, ooh
There's no work for me
Well my father told me son, don't you ever stray
From the land, that holds us together
But now he's gone, the land is bad and I'm afraid
I'm afraid of the times, that lie ahead

Lord why does the world, have to be this way
I'm alone, once again
Lord I pray, I pray to ya every day
Help me on, help me on, help me on Lord, help me on

Well the city life surely isn't the life I need oh no
There just ain't enough room for me to breathe, for me to breathe
Well there's too many cars, and too many bars and nothing to see
Except people who don't appear to be free

Lord why does the world, have to be this way
I'm alone, once again
Lord I pray, I pray to ya every day
Help me on, help me on, help me on Lord, help me on

Well I sit on a rock up my hill and I'm watching the clouds go by
There're so still, oh they're so slow and still
Well I sit on a rock up on my hill and I'm looking down at my little world
It's so real, it's so beautiful to me
Now I know lord what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna stay on this land and work it through
These difficult times that lie ahead, I'm gonna trust in you, trust in you instead

Now I know lord what I'm gonna do I'm gonna stay on this land and work it through
These difficult times that lie ahead I'm gonna trust in the Lord, trust in the lord instead

Lord I wanna thank you for giving me this day
Cause now I know, just what is my destiny
Lord I pray, I pray to ya every day
Keep me strong, and watch over me, keep me strong Lord and watch over me
