1. Bone Tired

From the recording Situation Out of Control


Bone tired, world-wearySomeday I'll lay my burden downThen I'll walk where angels talkAnd stand on sacred groundAll my lifeI've been waiting to seeBone tired, world-wearyGot my eyes on EternityI met a man, he was walkingDown this long and lonesome roadHe said, "I have a heavy pack upon my backAnd no way to lighten the loadI don't know where I'm goingBut I sure know where I've beenI work all day and half the nightGet up and do it all again"I saw a woman with her head bowed downShe had fallen to her kneesAll alone in a church of stoneBegging, "Lord, pleaseHave mercy, give meThe strength to carry on'Cause sometimes I feel, sometimes I feelLike I'm already dead and gone"
