Earth Blues

Earth Blues

Well, I see hands and tear-stained faces,
reaching up, but not quite touchin’ the promise land.
Well, I taste tears and a precious years wasted,
saying, “Lord please send us a helping hand.”
(Love, Love, Love.)
Out of the mountains stands a woman.
(Love, Love, Love.)
A, I feel her shinin’ light
(Love, Love, Love.)
Lord! Must be the answer.
Thank you Lord and keep her alright.
Got them earth blues today.
Well, I’ll hear the thunder of freedom’s beating heart.
Sirens clashing with black earth and rock and stone.
I think you better love me now darling, it just might be too late after awhile.
And tell her child to bury old daddy’s broken clothes
(Love, Love, Love.)
Hey! I see a beautiful woman.
(Love, Love, Love.)
Yes! And I feel her shinin’ light on me.
(Love, Love, Love.)
Love! Must be the answer.
Help me Lord and keep her alright for me
(Help me darlin’)
Help me darlin’
(Help me darlin’)
Too keep the light
(Help me darlin’)
Everything alright
(Help me darlin’)
Keep shinin’ bright
(Help me darlin’)
Help me darlin’
(Help me darlin’)
Help me darlin’
(Help me darlin’)
Ooooooo
(Help me darlin’)
Got those earth blues today.
(Love, Love, Love.)
Ooooooo
(Love, Love, Love.)
Sometimes my imagination grabs me by surprise
A queen of ebony in chains I visualize
And back on the moon I see her portrait in a tomb
And these words are written, “First woman from God’s womb.”
(Love, Love, Love.)
Hey! Stands a woman in the distance
(Love, Love, Love.)
And I feel her shinin’ light
(Love, Love, Love.)
Love, Love, Love must be the answer.
Thank you Lord and keep her alright
I think I’ll be alright with my baby in my arms
