09. The Weary Man

1919: The Ballad of Rexford
by Mark Lee Townsend


Oh weary man, what the
world is
wrong with you?
you push on, still you donít
what to do thereís
a trail of heartache youíve
left behind
worst of all,
it is not just in your mind
You have ruined the things
you held so dear
in the sad grip of alcohol and
you canít think how things
ever got so bad
Weary man donít you realize
what you had
And you go on living like
youíre only going to lose
Empty, self loathing,
battered, bruised
on you go
donít let it show
Thereís a light in the church
just down the road
Hard living man, how you
carry such a load
do you think that you might
just leave it there
O weary man, will you find
that someone cares?
Weary man, you will find
the Savior caresÖ

MLT-banjo, vocals Ross Holmes-violin
