Rollin’ On

I been working all my best, Momma, but I can’t afford to eat
I’m in dire need of rest, Momma, and I can’t get no sleep
Got an achin’ in my chest, Momma, and I can’t hardly breathe
I been lonesome, I been crying, Momma, and I can’t move my feet

Well, I been counting up my sins, Daddy, and I can’t find no church
My voice is getting thin, Daddy, calling out from my high perch
Someones got me pinned, Daddy, and they won’t give up the search
I’m all washed up and wasted, Daddy, and I can’t get much worse

Tell me I ain’t alone, Brother, Tell me I got a friend
The world’s skin and bone, Brother, and we all need a friend
I’m lost and I’m stoned, Brother, don’t you understand?
When I’m lying in your gutter, Brother, won’t you lend a hand
When I’m lying in your gutter, Brother, won’t you lend a hand

Take me to the river, Sister, let me float along
When the sun is just a sliver, Sister, show me the path I’m on
Hold me as I shiver, Sister, Hold me till the break of dawn
And as the day crosses over, Sister, I’ll be Rollin’ On
And as the day crosses over, Sister, I’ll be Rollin’ On
And as the day crosses over, Sister, I’ll be Rollin’ On
