Bruce Cockburn – It Won't Be Long lyrics

Heard the rooster crowing
couldn't see no dawn
but I know it won't be long

To keep the fire burning
ain't no easy game
but we'll do it just the same

I'm going to the northland
where the weather keeps you real
till this devil's law is repealed
and I know it won't be long
