Lyrics

Hard times in the city
On the bad side of town
One man hurts another


ADVERTISING


Kicks him while he's down
There is a place where love does abound
If you need shelter seek higher ground

Mama and the children
Are just sitting down
Faces are hungry
But there's no food around
I know a place where the harvest does abound
If you need shelter, seek higher ground

There is a girl
With a needle and a spoon
Hiding from the world
In a cold dark bedroom
I know a place
Where mercy does abound
If you need shelter, seek higher ground

Things seem hopeless on this rock around the sun
We gotta help each other
Baby hold on

There is an old man
Behind prison walls
Made some bad decisions
Through away it all
I know a place where forgiveness does abound
If you need shelter, seek higher ground
