It ain’t easy

2236276925_45d3fd3da6

On a dark and starless night
A baby boy was born
His mama threw him in a trash bin
In the midst of a winter storm
Tho he survived the stab wounds
Ment to take his life away
He will live with the scars
And he’ll know the truth someday

Chorus:Lord it ain’t easy
Living in this world today
Lord it ain’t easy
Finding the right words to say
When I pray

Bless the hungry and the homeless

Bless the victims of crimes

Bless the tired and the weary

Standing in hand out lines.

Bless the working poor

And souls that went astray

Bless the tiny children Lord

Lead us to a better way

repeat chorus:

The rich man and the poor man
The beggars and the thieves
Are All praying for enlightenment
All telling God their needs
How do we stop the hunger
The wars and poverty
As one by one we bow our heads
And one by one we agree
That lord it ain’t easy
Living in the world today
Lord it ain’t easy
Finding the right words
to say when I pray..

1986

Sorry to say I wrote this song after reading about it in the paper years ago…the boy must be grown now.so sad is life.

  1. No I’m tone death. Most of my early lyrics has music though. R. Soos from California was my music maker for many years.

  2. Such a cruel world, such heartbreaking song lyrics. Do you write music to the lyrics too?
