Grace

from by B. McCormick

lyrics

I want to strum the cosmic chord
To touch upon a universal nerve
But maybe I should do the dishes in the sink
Instead all I do is think

I yearn to hear my brother’s dreams
They’re reflected in all the songs he sings
So maybe I should get the dirt out of my ear
Or buy my brother a beer

Aw grace, where y’at?
If you feel me, sing it with me
Where y’at? Where’d you go?
Why don’t your horses swing low?

In the gospel songs, there’s that great amen
It’s a thousand souls all surrendering
But I can’t bring myself to put my cannons down
Does that mean that I’m Babylon bound?

Sometimes the wave comes over me
And I am you, and you are we
And I bet you we could get to heaven if we tried
Maybe if I tell a couple lies

Aw grace, where y’at?
If you feel me, sing it with me
Where y’at? Where’d you go?
Why don’t your horses swing low?

Come and carry me home
