about

Theme song from the novel ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES (available at www.wileequixote.com).

lyrics

Give me a song from a hard-workin’ man
That a workin’ man’s hands have played
Labor of love from a laborer’s heart
With the pride that he takes in his trade.
Farmer and cowboy in love with the land
Battlefield soldier, making your stand
Teacher and builder and factory hand
Won’t you bring me the songs you have made.
*****
Radio play me those old gold refrains
That bring my good memories home
Coffee-cold morning and hot afternoon
And on ‘til our five o’clock’s come.
Hear the wind blow, see the fire and the rain
Walk Folsom Prison and down Penny Lane
We shall be released and we’ll ride the peace train
To where our dreams always roam.
*****
So fly, all my hard-workin’ days
When we get home tonight, our songs we will raise
With my love by my side and my friends and my kin
We’ll be singin’ all the old hymns.
*****
Do you think Jesus sang as He worked with the twelve
By the side of that old dusty road?
Temple and court and the Galilee shore
With music to help bear the load.
Heal with a touch or a word or a smile
And I know you can heal with a song
Did He promise them as He was taken above,
“I will sing for you when you’re not strong.”
*****
Come home at twilight, sit down with the crew
Trade stories and laughter and pain
Start up the bonfire, pass round the brews
Reckon out our lives’ sunshine and rain.
Stars and guitars and the harmonies tune
Kiss the babies to sleep 'neath a lullaby moon
Singing we gather the strength in our souls
For that new morning comin’ up soon.
*****
So fly, all my hard-workin’ days
When we get home tonight, our songs we will raise
With my love by my side and my friends and my kin
We’ll be singin’ all the old hymns.
Singin’ all the old hymns
We’ll be singin’ all the old hymns.
