lyrics

- don’t get cross with me young man - no i’m looking toward my promised land - oh heaven knows i’ve been a fool, but hell don’t dance and i sure don’t duel - i’ve seen some things that’ll twist your spine, go on and tell me yours and i’ll show you mine - listen closely if you don’t mind trying - only one thing needs remembering if we’re all to be fine - that’s to work real hard try not to complain, till that sweet love makes me whole again, and I know my work is never done till i can see the good in everyone - well we crossed that river back and forth, it got too damn hot down there so we headed north - come white winter we headed south with empty hands and dry thirsty mouths - until that water boils and that desert flood, till the cities all sleep and the stones cry blood - till the lame do walk and the blind do see i will give you all thats left of me - and I just work real hard try not to complain till that sweet love makes me whole again and i know my work is never done till i can see the good in everyone - they say that preacher gonna preach, that their gonna steal, devil gonna wound and the lord gonna heal - i said don’t make your mind up too quick which one is which cause they all been known to bait and switch but ain’t that last temptation always the worst the way it all boils down to that final verse - i know even when my songs been sung i will still recall where they all begun - and i just work real hard try not to complain till that sweet love make me whole again and i know my work is never done till i can see the good in everyone.
