TRANSCRIPT

♪PIANO

DAY AFTER DAY,

ON THE HIGHWAY

I WITNESS THINGS I DON'T

WANT TO SEE

SKINNY DOG STANDING

ON THE ROADSIDE

AN OLD MAN WITH

NO SHOES ON HIS FEET

MY MOMMA

TAUGHT ME WELL TO KNOW RIGHT

FROM WRONG

LEFT ME A CONSCIENCE

WON'T LEAVE ME ALONE

WHEN ALL I

WANNA DO IS GET BACK HOME

I HEAR

IT CALLING TO ME

I CAN'T BELIEVE

WHAT I READ IN THE PAPERS

THE SAME NEWS EVERY DAY

SO MUCH HUNGER

NEIGHBORS HATING NEIGHBORS

WHO BROUGHT US UP TO

ACT THIS WAY?

I KNOW I WASN'T BORN TO BE NO

POLITICIAN

I'LL GO DOWN AND HELP

OUT AT THE MISSION

MAYBE I'LL

DROP THE MAYOR A LINE

TELL HIM

WHAT'S BEEN ON MY MIND

REACH OUT

YOUR HANDS SONS AND DAUGHTERS

GET TOGETHER, GO AND TROUBLE THE

WATERS WE MAY BE GONE BEFORE IT

GETS DONE BUT REVIVAL IS GONNA

COME

YES IT IS

SO MUCH TO DO,

MANY NEED HELPING

THIS AINT NO

TIME TO ROLL WITH THE TIDE

WHAT'S THE USE WATCHING AND

WAITING

STAND UP CHILD,

SPEAK YOUR MIND

A PEBBLE MAKES A

RIPPLE,

THAT GETS IT STARTED

GET ON OUT AND

THROW A SEED ON THE GARDEN

MY DADDY ALWAYS SAYS "YOU

WILL REAP WHAT YOU SOW"

CULTIVATE WHAT YOU WANT TO GROW

REACH OUT YOUR HANDS SONS AND

DAUGHTERS GET TOGETHER

TROUBLE THE WATERS

WE MAY BE

GONE BEFORE IT GETS DONE

BUT

REVIVAL IS GONNA COME

REACH OUT

YOUR HANDS SONS AND DAUGHTERS

GET TOGETHER, TROUBLE THE

WATERS

WE MAY BE GONE BEFORE IT

GETS DONE

BUT REVIVAL IS GONNA

COME

REVIVAL IS GONNA COME

YES IT IS.
