Strength Of One Man

Original and similar lyrics
There's a system we all must follow If we wanna get ahead Some men are strong enough to make it And others are just too afraid But mama told me a story And it keeps, keeps me alive Said some are weak, the weak fall by the wayside And all the strong the strong survive Now you tell me... How strong is the strength of a man Can he stay on his road, and carry his load Can he carry his load Can he carry his load Can he carry his load Can he carry his load We have picked people, and say they're on our side And after they did everything they want (y'all) They start to tell us lie, just lie after lie But we can't blame our problems On just that chose few Caues if we wann solve then It's up to me and up to you Now you tell me... How strong is the strength of a man Can he stay on his road, and carry his load Can he carry his load Can he carry his load Can he carry his load Can he carry his load Is he strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough Strong enough, because the road is tough

A Hundred Miles Of Bad Road

Andy Griggs "Freedom"
A HUNDRED MILES OF BAD ROAD It's a long, long way from where I am, To where I ought to be. I can't remember where I made this turn, Into no-man's land, as far as I can see Stranded being and a-broken down, With only one way from this place. I always find the strength I need, In the arms of my Angel and my saving grace And I ain't sure how you carry me, Through the darkest hours, so easily. And I ain't sure how you carry this load, Down a hundred miles of bad road I handed you what was left of me, Prayin' it would be enough This black and blue and a-worn out heart, Was empty 'til you filled it up with your love And I ain't sure how you carry me, Through the darkest hours, so easily And I ain't sure how you carry this load, Down a hundred miles of bad road Is all I'll ever see If there's an easier way, it ain't shown itself to me But the burden ain't as heavy as it used to be And I ain't sure how you carry me, Through the darkest hours, so easily And I ain't sure how you carry this load I ain't sure how you carry me, Through the darkest hours, so easily And I ain't sure how you carry this load, Down a hundred miles of bad road Down a hundred miles of bad road Yeah Yeah, down a hundred miles of bad road

Dreams To Dust

JAMESTOWN STORY "Jamestown Story & Friends"
It's just another Thursday night downtown playing for an inconsistent crowd put a dollar in my tip jar, it's all that's in there so far I'm hoping I can finally make enough cause I'm paying all my dues with every show by singing through this worn out microphone busy night but no one's watching, my voice unheard through all the talking Is it worth it? I don't really know It's hard to know if I should carry on when all my dreams have slowly turned to dust All I know is that I'm tired of heading down a road that's just a dead end questioning if I am strong enough to not give up The pacing back and forth inside my head has finally got me hanging by a thread I'm sick and tired of indecisions tempting me to finally give in and give up on everything I've done to get this far It's hard to know if I should carry on when all my dreams have slowly turned to dust All I know is that I'm tired of heading down a road that's just a dead end questioning if I am strong enough to not give up It's like I'm always moving backwards I can't stand to face the fact that everybody's moving up but me now these doubts are spinning faster in my head I'm like the ghost that never left It's hard to know if I should carry on when all my dreams have slowly turned to dust All I know is that I'm tired of heading down a road that's just a dead end questioning if I am strong enough to not give up I won't give up

My Soldier

AJ RAFAEL
When you're feeling sad and blue Don't you know that I will always be here for you When everything just makes us go out of our mind Just know that I will always have the time for you You say that I am your influence You should know that you inspire me, now until the end I'll help you get through the thick and thin And I know you'll remember when, I say... You are strong strong as a soldier Even when winds are tough you'll always keep it together. You are strong, strong as a soldier I know you'll get through anything 'Cause you're strong, strong, strong as a soldier. When the waves are crashing down, can't get up Just know I'll pick you up from the ground When it feels like everything goes wrong, Just remember to listen to this song You are strong strong as a soldier Even when winds are tough you'll always keep it together. You are strong, strong as a soldier I know you'll get through anything 'Cause you're strong, strong, strong as a soldier. Don't you worry about the obstacles to your happiness If you let them get to you, you'll endure just like the rest. I know you're better than those people who get in the way Just remember what I always say... You are strong strong as a soldier Even when winds are tough you'll always keep it together. You are strong, strong as a soldier I know you'll get through anything 'Cause you're strong, strong, strong as a soldier. You are strong, strong, strong as a soldier Strong, strong, strong as a soldier

Sanctuary

JAMIE O'NEAL "Shiver"
(Jamie O'Neal/Daryl Burgess) What is this thing you do Make me just tell the truth Whenever I turn to you I surrender Fears that I've tried to hide And every old alibi Now I see a source of light Just within my reach You are my sanctuary My beacon in the night You opened up your heart You let me walk inside When the world is turnin' crazy I run to your embrace Only you can save me I've finally found a place To lay down the load that I carry You are my sanctuary Don't know what brought us here But one thing I know clear I traveled a trali of tears to find you Now when I'm on the brink Down to my weakest link And the weight makes me sink Down to my knees You are my sanctuary My beacon in the night You opened up your heart You let me walk inside When the world is turnin' crazy I run to your embrace Only you can save me I've finally found a place To lay down the load that I carry You are my sanctuary Now love seems so easy You are my everything So simple you touch me My worries drift away You are my sanctuary My beacon in the night You opened up your heart You let me walk inside When the world is turnin' crazy I run to your embrace Only you can save me I've finally found a place To lay down the load that I carry You are my sanctuary You are my sanctuary
