Have Mercy

Everybody Walkin' This Land

by Paul Cauthen

on Have Mercy (2018)

[Verse 1]
All you mothers and you brothers and you sisters and you fathers and everybody walkin' this land:
No matter your race, your creed, your tribe, this nation you defend
With open hearts, open minds, lend a helpin' hand each time
To the mothers and the brothers and the sisters and the fathers: everybody walkin' this land

[Verse 2]
All you believers, pretenders, bona fide sinners; everybody walkin' this land:
No matter your church, your faith, your sign, this lion in your den
All [?] Jesus Christ, we're all livin' in a paradise
With believers, pretenders, bona fide sinners; everybody walkin' this land

[Chorus 1]
Lord we pray we make it through the day
All you mothers, you brothers, you sisters, you fathers, believers, pretenders, bona fide sinners, everybody walkin' this land

[Verse 3]
All you racists, fascists, nihilists and bigots: I'm callin' you out, my friend
I've felt your hurt, drank your fear, your actions will not stand
Get on your knees, then to pray; look at me, you can change
You racists, fascists, nihilists and bigots: I'm callin' you out, my friend

[Chorus 2]
Lord we pray you make it through the day
You racists, fascists, nihilists and bigots: we're prayin' for you, my friend

[Verse 4]
All you prophets, saints, angels and ladies and all you gentlemen
We've walked on fire, we've fought through hell, we're soldiers 'til the end
If you can't get enough, don't think that devil won't fill your cup
You mothers, you brothers, you sisters, you fathers, you believers, pretenders, bona fide sinners, racists, fascists, nihilists and bigots, prophets, saints and angels and ladies, all you gentlemen

[Outro]
Everybody walkin' this land
