By T-Bone Burnett

The power of love can make a blind man see
Can bring a man to his knees

The power of love can make a sultan grieve
Can make a skeptic believe

Chorus:
The power of love is south of south
And scorches out all the doubt

The power of love is the name of names
And burns away all the pain

The power of love can make a gangster cry
Can make a loser try

The power of love can make a strong man weak
Can make a bigot meek

Chorus

The power of love can make a coward brave
Can make a hero afraid

The power of love can make a miser give
Can make a dead man live

Chorus
Chorus
