08. Third World Woman

Somewhere Down The Road
by Amy Grant



 

What if I were that mother staring from my
TV • What if that were my brown-eyed baby •
Hungry as she could be • What if that were my
family • What if that was my world • Waiting
on water waiting on a vaccine • Waiting on
someone to bring me a bag of beans
Lord have mercy on me
What if I was that mother and I was waiting
on me • The big success so well dressed on the
other side of the sea • Living with my distractions
• Life’s been good to me • Maybe she’s
praying • Praying for a miracle • Maybe the
answer is me •• Lord have mercy on me
I was born in Georgia where I could do as
I pleased • And I can get my hands on just
about anything I might need • Who’s that
third world woman maybe she could be •
Could be mother could be daughter could be
sister to me •• Lord have mercy on me
