Promised Land


Momma, please help me find my way
can't help it I can't stay
no way to find my own,
no where to go, direction still unknown

Sister, please help me cause I can't
I can't see no more
not like I was before
guess I'm growin' old

Someone please come take my hand
and lead me to the land
I once knew when I was young, oh so young
Can't you see I'm not the same
not the boy that I use to be
thought I'd found the Promised Land
where the ocean meets the sand
but now, I'm not so sure
just thought I, could return

Brothers, please call me on the phone
an tell me all the news from home
I wanta know,
have we gotten any snow?

Father, please listen cause I'm me
not the man that you thought I'd be
sometimes it's told
that each man must find his soul

Someone please come take my hand
and lead me to the land
I once knew when I was young, oh so young
can't you see that I'm not the same,
not the boy that I use to be
thought I'd found the Promised land
but the promise is beyond me
and now, I'm not so sure
wish that I could return

So mamma, please help me cause I can't
I can't cry no more
not like those early days
my life has gone away
