(Merle Haggard)

Like the ancient Roman empire this world is doin' to fall
And it's much too bigger thing for mortal men
Just take a look around and see the writing on the wall
Somehow we've got to find a helping hand.

This world has never been in the awful shape it's in
And people scorn the things our leaders do
It's time the prayer was spoken from the heart of every man
Jesus take a hold and lead us through.

The magic roar of gunfire is now a local sound
And our city streets're filled with angry men
Love's now a mockery throughout our troubled land.

And destruction seems to be the current trend
This world has never been in the awful shape it's in
And our leaders seem in doubt of what to do
It's time the prayer was spoken from the heart of every man
Jesus take a hold and lead us through.

Jesus take a hold and lead us through...
This song is from the album "Best Of The Early Years", "Hag", "The Lonesome Fugitive-The Merle Haggard Anthology" and "Hag-The Studio Recordings 1969-1976".
